Bebop Spoken There

Teddy Wilson: "Mildred Bailey was a much better singer than Billie [Holiday]." - (DownBeat August, 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".

That popular bandleader, bass trombonist, raconteur - the King of Swing - Peter Morgan informs me that...

The format is as previous - First set: rehearsal to iron out the creases and try out new numbers. Second set: Performance, including a few numbers from Ruth Lambert.
That's next Tuesday Nov. 3 @ New Crown Hotel, South Shields. 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm.

I look forward to that very much!! I've had a great afternoon at Porthole with "Jazz Esquires". I love this cosy Wednesday afternoon at North Shields and it was great to sing with the guys again.
