Bebop Spoken There

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".

COFID- 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.

Whitley Bay Classic Jazz Party 2011

Day One saw Derek Fleck and myself, carefully supervised by Mrs Fleck a.k.a Grupenfuhrer Alice dishing out weekend passes to a truly cosmopolitan collection of musicians and fans. English was far from being the native tongue - there was even a gentleman from Japan - amongst this convivial bunch!
Mike Durham has to be congratulated on creating such a successful follow up to the late Whitley Bay Jazz Festival as ticket sales were close to capacity.
This didn't leave much time for actually listening as, after my Steward duties were over I had to return to the Domestic Front. However, I did manage to catch some Hot Antic, the French band being augmented on this occasion by Mike Durham, himself, on trumpet and vocals (in English), Kristoffer Kompen (trombone) and vibes wizard Raymond Graisier on, wait for it, washboard!
It was a fine example of classic jazz and the perfect start to what looks to be a grand weekend.
Lance.
