Bebop Spoken There

Dee Dee Bridgewater: "We found out that the estate doesn't allow any lyrics to Coltrane's music" - (DownBeat 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".


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.


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.

The Lemondrop Kid.

I met a chap in the car park as I was leaving tonight's River City gig. his name was Ken. Ken told me he once met Duke Ellington in Newcastle and sang George Wallington's "Lemondrop" for him. Now Ken, if you read this you've got to tell us more. There can't be many amongst us who have sang "Lemondrop" for Jazz's all-time numero uno and to have sung it for him in Newcastle must surely be unique. So please, Ken, tell it like it was.
