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".

Maine Street Jazzmen @ Rosie Malone's, South Shields. Thursday Sept 1.

Olive Rudd (vcl); Herbie Hudson (tmb/hca/vcl); Jim McBriarty (clt/sop/vcl); George Richardson (keys); Alan Rudd (bs); Mike Humble (dms).
Another fine Thursday afternoon at Rosie's with all participants in good form.
Herbie excelled on Lazy River using all three of his chosen forms of expression. Jimmy sang If I Only Had a Girl and he too, during the course of the afternoon, split himself three-ways. On keys, George produced a multitude of voices and, talking about 'voices' Olive sang Can't Help Loving That Man of Mine who just happened to be playing bass!
Mike proved that less can be more on his minimalist drum kit.
It was another splendid afternoon at Rosie Malone's.
