Bebop Spoken There

Adam O'Farrill: "Right now in my life, I don't see music as the be-all and end-all." - (DownBeat November 2020).

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".


12,176 (and counting) posts since we started blogging 12 years ago. 1315 of them this year alone and, so far, 18 this month (Dec. 5).

Remembering ...

Roland Kirk died on Dec. 5, 1977.

Jazz Voice | EFG London Jazz Festival 2020 - Nov. 13

Not sure if I'm allowed to do this but if the BBC or EFG object I'll take it down immediately. This way it saves me waxing eloquent about these jazz/soul voices - China Moses; Zara McFarlane; Vanessa Haynes; Luca Manning & Cleveland Watkiss - who made the rafters of Cadogan Hall ring - not just with their voices but with their soul and dedication to the job in hand.
Guy Barker's arrangements were tremendous and I'm certainly not going to single out any one performer except maybe Jamoké Fashola who compared the show so professionally - and looked good too!

Friday 13? - Nah, impossible - now what's this official looking brown envelope awaiting to be opened? 

It's Friday 13 alright!
PS: The pre-concert action starts at 6:12 the concert shortly after.
