Bebop Spoken There

Clare Teal: "If you're brought up in a working-class family, you haven't got money for records so everything you get hold of, you treasure, learn to love, and I loved those Ella tapes." - (Radio Times 23-29 January 2021)

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".


12,393 (and counting) posts since we started blogging 12 years ago. 112 of them this year alone and, so far, 112 this month (Jan. 23).

Farewell Blues

Sadly, three more jazz musicians have left us. French pianist, composer Claude Bolling; American pianist and longtime member of the Maria Schneider Orchestra, Frank Kimbrough and Eugene Wright, bassist with the classic Dave Brubeck Quartet.

Click on the links below for their obituaries.

All made major contributions to jazz and, in Bolling's case, beyond. All will be sadly missed. May they REST IN PEACE.


Dec. 29: Claude Bolling, 90.

Dec. 30: Frank Kimbrough, 64.

Dec. 30: Eugene Wright, 97.
