Bebop Spoken There

Tony Kofi: "I bought myself an alto saxophone and learned from mum's record collection Duke Ellington, Louis Armstrong, Doris Day" - (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".


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.

On The Road with Brian Bennett

Just to remind everyone that The Vieux Carre Jazzmen's Christmas Party at The Corner House goes ahead as planned tonight - special guest Neville Hartley, piano and trombone - everyone welcome. Seasons greetings to all our friends and supporters - have a very merry Christmas and 'All the Best' for 2011. Brian.
PS: (Picture) - Sunday 19 December, 2010. Brian Chester, trombone; Paul Susans, Sousaphone; Brian Bennett, banjo and Derek Fleck, clarinet, performing for South Tyneside Council to entertain the multitude of Christmas shoppers and children in South Shields. Ho, ho, ho! It's a great life if your fingers don't freeze.

On second thoughts, Lance, perhaps 'In the Gutter with Brian Bennett' would be a more appropriate heading.
However, it only goes to prove we'll play anywhere for money - won't we Don Fairley?

Looking at the photo there isn't anyone around. Must be the banjo.
