Bebop Spoken There

Dave Puddy: "Eventually we paid our entrance money [to Eel Pie Island] and fought our way to one of the many bars where we could buy our Newcastle Brown and retire to the back of the heaving dancefloor. There must have been lights somewhere, but my memory remains of being in some dark cavernous wonderland." - (Just Jazz July 2020)

Dave Rempis:Ten years from now, I can see musicians streaming concerts in real time and charging a minimal amount for people to watch.” - (DownBeat September 2013)


The Things They Say!

Hudson Music: Lance's "Bebop Spoken Here" is one of the heaviest and most influential jazz blogs in the UK.

Rupert Burley (Dynamic Agency): "BSH just goes from strength to strength".


11,618 (and counting) posts since we started blogging just over 12 years ago. 753 of them this year alone and, so far, 17 this month (July 5).


As we all know there are no live gigs taking place in the immediate future. However, any links to jazz streaming that are deemed suitable - i.e. with a professional approach - will be considered for posting.

Paul Edis - Livestream #15 - June 26

Paul Edis (piano/vocal).

Livestream #15 and Paul "the piano" Edis, like that ol' man river, just keeps rollin' along. I've lost count of the number of tunes he's played over this 15 week period and, as yet, without repetition. No mean achievement particularly as there's no throwaway tunes to pad it out - each one given the meticulous interpretation it deserves.

This week we had This I Dig of You; Night & Day (vocal); One Hand, One Heart; Pulse (original); Alice in Wonderland; Recado Bossa Nova; Young and Foolish; My Romance; Mr Hipster (original); Somewhere and, to finish, The Preacher.

PS: I'd just finished my review when Russell scanned me a copy of the Mr Hipster tee shirt that Paul had made reference to which put paid to my record attempt at an earlier posting (2:04pm)!
