Bebop Spoken There

Neil Hopper, House of the Black Gardenia: "We had the idea when we first started that we would be like Tuba Skinny or something, but that didn't really suit us." - (NARC 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".

Jeff Barnhart @ South Shields and Gosforth

Just a reminder that the great ragtime and stride piano man from Mystic, Connecticut, Jeff Barnhart, will be in town this weekend. On Friday night he can be heard at the grand piano in the Customs House, South Shields (main theatre) from 8.00pm, solo in the first half and with local assistance (trumpet, clarinet/sax and drums) in the second - Box Office is 0191 454 1234. 
On Saturday Jeff is at the Trinity Centre, Gosforth, with a rather different programme - first half with his flautist wife, Anne, in a set taking us from Ragtime to Broadway (with rest-stops at Dixieland and Swing, Jeff informs us), second half in a solo exploration of some of Fats Waller's lesser-known compositions (some even unpublished/unrecorded) ..... "Unsaturated Fats", as you might say. Box office for this one is 0191 285 6130. Note 7:30pm start for Trinity concert.
Hope to see you at one or the other!
Mike.
