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.

Tonight - Sunderland v Newcastle!

Tonight sees the start of the weekend's Great North Big Band Festival at the Sir Tom Cowie Campus at St. Peter's, Charles St., Sunderland.
Tonight it's BBC Big Band altoist - Paul Jones - and Musicians Unlimited tenorist - Mick Donnelly doing a Quintet and a Big Band set.
Tomorrow afternoon is the Youth and Open Big Band Competition with the winning bands playing again in the evening.
Sunday afternoon is a Jazz Workshop followed by the Schools Big Band Jazz Competition.
Full details in RH column.
However, just as Newcastle and Sunderland football teams are in opposition on Sunday, tonight, Friday March 2, Newcastle has some jazz opposition to the Sunderland gig.
I refer to the Paul Edis Sextet at the Lit and Phil.where they launch their new CD There Will Be Time  This is a cracking disc and the opportunity to hear it live (and buy) should be well worth the effort.
Plus afterwards - in the equivalent of extra time - you can hop over to the Jazz Café and catch the Safe Sextet! 
So Sunderland or Newcastle? The choice is yours.
Lance.
