Bebop Spoken There

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.

Alan Barnes, Ken Peplowski Group. Dryfesdale Hotel - Lockerbie Jazz Festival Sunday Afternoon Oct 3

Alan Barnes/Ken Peplowski (reeds), Paul Harrison (pno), Mario Caribe (bs), Doug Hough (dms).
After collecting Herbie's trombone from Roy (Roy promises to buy you the biggest drink ever for saving his life Herbie) I dashed up the road to catch Barnes and Peplowski arriving towards the end of the first set.
They were blowing 9:20 Special - two tenors and rhythm Phew! This one jumped! Interesting to compare the two styles; Ken, light and airy, Alan, bloody, bold and resolute - the rapier versus the sabre.
Honours even I guess.
Some gems in the second set. Monk's Ask Me Now and the Clark Terry/Jimmy Hamilton variation on Perdido. More good piano from Harrison, Mario Caribe excelling once more on bass (he was with Carol on the opening night) whilst the ubiquitous Doug Hough booted them along.
More humour from out front by 'the boys' this was a grand way to end a fantastic festival - if only the organisers could have worked their magic on the weather!
Lance.
PS: There was so much going on throughout the Festival that I couldn't catch it all so apologies to those who I missed out.
