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.

The familiar, the not so familiar and the local on BBC Radio 3

This weekend's jazz offering on Radio 3 ranges from a lockdown set by South African pianist Nduduzo Makhathini (pictured) who made a stunning impact on the recent UNESCO International Jazz Day live stream, Tyneside's Mariam Rezaei and your regular appointment with Alyn Shipton

Makhathini is featured on Saturday's J to Z (Radio 3, 5:00pm) as is Art Themen who selects tracks which were an inspiration to him. Gateshead's turntabalist Rezaei discusses her work on Corey Mwamba's Freeness (midnight Saturday) and on Sunday afternoon at four o'clock Alyn Shipton plays listeners' requests - including Errol Garner, Thelonious Monk, Ike Quebec and Buddy Rich - on Jazz Record Requests
