Bebop Spoken There

Avishai Cohen (trumpet): "This is my main thing right now: Live in the here and now, take things one day at a time. I'm stopping everything I can, and stripping everything to the bone. I'm spending a lot of time listening to music, playing, going for walks, enjoying my kids." - (DownBeat June 2020).

Dave Rempis:Ten years from now, I can see musicians streaming concerts in real time and charging a minimal amount for people to watch.” - (DownBeat September 2013)

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".

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.

Love is like a Double Bass

Hil has informed me that she is pleased to announce the news that her daughter Zoe (Gilby) has become engaged to local bass supremo Andy Champion. May their happiness be undiminished (even augmented!) Lance.

Thank you for your kind comments Lance.

They are both so in love and very happy together. Known each other now for about 6 yrs as friends but only been an item for 15 months.

Who said romance is dead?...;o) its very much alive in bonny Cullercoats.

I am lucky to be gaining a lovely son-in-law who I know will take care of my precious daughter.

Honeymoon in New York?

There's a long jazz history of bassist/vocalist marriages from Ray Brown and Ella Fitzgerald to Geoff Gascoyne and Trudy Kerr.

I'm sure there's more, but Andy and Zoe are my favourites in the North East. Congratulations.
