Bebop Spoken There

Jeremy Pelt: "I'm so much into melodies and into sound, and the presence of sound, that I don't necessarily want to try to play in between the cracks of a note." - (DownBeat November 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".

R.I.P. Moira Brown

The death has been announced of Moira Brown, widow of the late Ray Brown - former Tyneside drummer and bandleader (Tyne Valley Stompers).
Moira, who died suddenly on April 17 aged 75, was an enthusiastic member of the Gateshead Jazz Record Society.
The funeral will take place on Monday April 23 at 10:00am at St. Peter's RC Church followed at 11:15am by cremation at Saltwell Crematorium and afterwards at Gateshead Fell Cricket Club - the venue where Ray formed the original Jazz At The Fell jazz club.
Our condolences go out to her family.
Lance.

Thanks for this Lance. Just to say the venue is now the Gateshead Fell Rugby club just beside the cricket club.
