Bebop Spoken There

Freddie Gavita: "I first got into pedals when playing with Mark Fletcher's outfit Fletch's Brew. I felt with the line up I needed a bit of help" - (Jazzwise April, 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".

COVID-19

In the current climate we are doing our best to keep everyone up to date. All gigs, as we all know, are off.

However, good old YouTube has plenty to offer both old and new to help us survive whilst housebound. Plus now is a good time to stock up on your CDs.

Also, keep an eye out for live streaming sessions.

Alternatively, you could do as they do in Italy and sing from your balcony.

Today

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.

Cleethorpes Jazz Weekend - Report from John Taylor

Just back from Cleethorpes. Did Sat/Sun only with stopover Sat night
Its three or more years since Alan and I were last there and audience numbers were well down. Saturday afternoon was particularly not for me - three free form bands in a row. Alan Barnes was just a three piece. - not a big enough sound. No real "star" attraction - altogether the festival had only one redeeming feature and that was the Alex Welsh reunion band.
To sum it up: Too far to travel (got home 1:30 am this morning). No atmosphere from an older audience who did not understand free form. Jazzed out - too much pushed into a short time - Scarborough looks a better bet - but it has some of the same free form bands
