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).

National Youth Jazz Collective

Ferg Kilsby, who in the early days of the first lockdown brightened up our Thursday evenings with sessions on the patio of the family des res (dad on bass guitar and brother Dom on drums), played trumpet at a Summer School this year with the National Youth Jazz Collective, which normally runs physically in Derbyshire but, like so much else this year, was held online!

They played in eight combos led by outstanding musicians and some of the resulting recordings can be heard on the next few Wednesday evenings on Facebook - link.*

Ferg's combo (led by Kathy Dyson of Leeds Conservatoire) are on tomorrow night (Wednesday Nov. 4) at 6:00 pm playing their take on Jonathan Kreisberg's The Spin.

Worth giving it a look in.
