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 ...

We've been here before...

Music venues must now cease live performance at 10:00pm on Wednesday. Yes, it's lockdown time all over again...or is it? Not quite, schools, colleges and universities remain open, it's as if the virus gives a wide birth to such institutions. So, from Thursday you can burn an effigy of Guy Fawkes or AN Other (the choice is yours) but if you want to hear some jazz, it's back to the virtual world of the live stream. 

Until then, here's a selection of live streams to be getting on (Sunday at one o'clock) it's the always brilliant Adrian Cox conducting his Sunday Service, this week in the company of pianist Joe Webb and Sidney Bechet. To view at 1:00pm, or catch-up later, simply head to Adrian Cox Music (Facebook, it's open to all). 

Tomorrow night (Monday) there is the usual set from Ronnie's (8:15pm), this week featuring Joe Stilgoe (Tom Farmer, bass, Ben Reynolds, drums). In competition with Frith Street is the House of the Black Gardenia. The nine piece band's debut album - The New Lowdown - is just out and it's a cracker, so why not join Neil, Elise and co at eight o'clock
