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.

Tomasso and Thomas livestreaming - June 19.

Enrico Tomasso (trumpet/vocal); Thomas "Spats" Langham (guitar/banjo/vocal).

Stream two - it's a busy night for me! Say When opened with a vocal from Spats and a hot chorus from Rico. East St. Louis Toodle-oo had some fine plungering by Rico on top of Spats' banjoing. Louise was a natural choice as it seems every girl in Rico's family is a Louise and we had the added bonus of a Rico vocal.

A pint of Owd Rodger (7.4%) to keep Rico's chops lubricated before they rounded things off with an Irving Berlin number - When the Folks High Up Do the Mean Lowdown. Bing sang it in a film and Spats sang it here as well as giving some virtuoso banjo playing. Rico too pitched in with his vocal chords as well as some belting trumpet.

Back tomorrow night at 7:00.
