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.

And I thought the weather at Scarborough was bad! Overture to the Lockerbie Jazz Festival.

Motored west, took the highway that's the best, get your kicks on Route A69!
It was wet and the further west I drove the wetter it got. Turned right at Carlisle and the rain became even rainier. Hurried past Gretna which looked more grey than green and eventually made it to Lockerbie.
Swam across the hotel car park happy to be sheltered before being engulfed in the warmth of the greeting and the room.
A sirloin steak about half the size of a bull's backside put me in a better frame of mind and I looked forward to tonight's Carol Kidd concert at the Town Hall.
Then the word got through.
The Town Hall roof was leaking and the concert moved to the Dryfesdale Hotel a couple of miles up the road. I've got my fingers crossed.
The other Town Hall concerts have been moved to the Lockerbie Academy.
Wherever, it still looks good musicwise.
