Bebop Spoken There

Lew Shaw (Syncopated Times' columnist): "My interest [at 95] is in classic jazz. The numbers aren't what they were 40 years ago, but I'm encouraged by the number of young musicians playing that style and the young audiences they attract." - (The Syncopated Times January 2021)

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".

Tonight at the Cherry Tree

Tonight is a rather special night at the Cherry Tree Restaurant (9 Osborne Rd., Jesmond, Newcastle. 0191 2399924).
A return visit by the Alan Glen Trio.
There are few better trios than this and it galls me that, laid up and housebound with what seems like Galloping Malaria - of which there is no known cure - I will miss the flattened fifths and diminished sevenths laid down by Alan on piano ably abetted by John Pope on bass and David Carnegie on drums. Listening to CDs by Hampton Hawes and Bud Powell will go someway to alleviate the pain musically but Pot Noodles as opposed to the Cherry Tree's renowned Bavette Steak avec Frites?!
Pass the Codeine.
Lance.
