Bebop Spoken There

Dick Katz: "Carmen [McRae] would say some pretty caustic things but, so what? There aren't any people who don't talk caustically to each other at some time unless they're Mother Teresa." - (Lesley Gourse: Carmen McRae Miss Jazz - Billboard Books 2001, 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".

We Have Our Agents Everywhere - look out for them at a gig near you...

Thursday April 5 is one for the record books - Four separate reviews from four different gigs at four different venues by four different people!
David Gosling reported on Greg Spero at Lanercost - making Sunday at The Bridge a must (as well as Zefferelli's and Carlisle Jazz Club on tonight and next Thursday respectively). Russell reviewed the Zoe Gilby Quartet at Blaydon, Jerry waxed lyrical about the Paul Edis Sextet at Hexham whilst Lance threw in his two-pennyworth on the Strictly Smokin' Big Band at Hoochie Coochie.
Our operatives are everywhere so, next time you go to a gig, be careful what you say - the guy (or the gal) in the corner taking copious notes may be a BSH Agent - Licenced To Spill (the beans)...
'M'
