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.

Ed Bickert by Roly

Canadian Ed Bickert is one of the all-time great jazz guitarists. A very quiet, modest man he has graced the Canadian jazz scene for fifty+ years but I read somewhere that, sadly, he has totally retired now, depressed by the death of his wife about five years ago. All he ever seemed to play was an old beat up 60s Fender Telecaster but from it he extracted a gorgeous warm tone with which he created his lyrical melodic lines and tasteful, subtle comping. He worked with all the top mainstream Canadian and USA players - his recordings with Paul Desmond regarded as classics. Definitely a unique player worth checking out. For more info go to this link .
Hear him play 'You'd be so nice' (to come home to).
