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.

RIP James Moody.

We knew it wouldn't be long but it was still a shock when the news came through.
What a beautiful player he was, whether on tenor, alto or flute James Moody had such a lovely sound. He played Newcastle Jazz Festival and the Corner House both superb gigs. As well as his playing his sense of humour also shone through.
James Moody died December 9 aged 85.
He will be missed the world over.
Lance.

So sad to hear of James Moody's passing.

Just listened to Easy Living, it really does tug at my heart strings.

I have admired James Moody's tenor playing for years. The last gig I saw him play was at Allendale of all places - a good pub though. I even got his autograph and he signed, and I quote, "To Eric with spiritulistic love James Moody" he even did a little cartoon graphic, what a gent. He will be sadly missed, but we still have his records forever.
