Bebop Spoken There

Clare Teal: "If you're brought up in a working-class family, you haven't got money for records so everything you get hold of, you treasure, learn to love, and I loved those Ella tapes." - (Radio Times 23-29 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".

Maine Street Jazzmen @ Rosies

Herbie Hudson (tmb.vcl/hca); Gavin Lee (clt); Brian Chester (pno); Alan Rudd (bs); Mike Humble (dms); Olive Rudd (vcl).
I've heard Gavin Lee several times yet today it was like hearing him for the first time!
Today he blew loosely and soared effortlessy above the ensemble - albeit with some harmless show-boating along the way that was well received by the crowd. In the continuing absence of Ray Harley Gavin adds that little bit of extra personality to the front-line.
On keys, Brian Chester slotted in admirably his two-handed style perfectly suited to the idiom. Olive passed her finals with honours and graduated as Doctor Jazz whilst her version of Bei Mir Bist Du Schoen raised La Belle Dame to consultancy level.
It was an enjoyable afternoon.
Lance.
