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.

Pete King is Dead - Long Live Pete King!

This morning's Daily Express publishes its obituary of the late Pete King, former saxophone player and co-founder of Ronnie Scott's Club. It's a standard piece not unlike several others I've read. However, where this one differs is in its choice of photo.
The Pete King pictured in the article is not the deceased Pete King but the saxophone playing Pete King who is still alive and regarded by many as Britains finest alto saxophonist.
Why did I just know that sooner or later this was bound to happen?!

I suppose it's the downside of the incredible ease of getting info. online now on any topic under the sun. Some reporter, with little knowledge or experience, is asked to do a write up, gets data via Google or Wikipedia and job done!
And editorial control is a joke. Oh dear! I remember our Billy Harper doing a gig somewhere in the region and the publicity bumf had a photo of Billy Harper the American tenor player. Bill found that very amusing. But you can't help but think in the good old 'old days' experienced 'old hands' got their facts right even though methods were slower and more laborious. Instant access, instant news, instant cock ups. Who cares - there's always tomorrow's news and todays is instantly forgotten.
