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.

Flashmob to play Jazz Café

Flashmob - paradoxically a quartet - are to appear at Newcastle's Jazz Café on Wednesday Nov. 9.
This is part of a Jazz Services sponsored tour and the Newcastle gig came up after a date elsewhere fell through.
The band comprises Ryan Williams (guitar); Rory Simmons (trumpet); Will Collier (bass) and Nick Smalley (drums).
Williams, in the forefront of the picture is a Guildhall graduate, and he described the bands music to me as 'straight ahead jazz with some rock and contemporary elements also in the mix.'
Listen to Chetniks. Chetniks, I'm led to understand were a Serbian paramilitary movement however, listening to Simmons' lyrical trumpet leads me to believe another Chet may have been a bigger influence!
As of yet times and door price have yet to be announced - watch this space.
Lance.
