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.

RIP Big Jim Sullivan.

The man was a legend - played with just about every pop star from the sixties onwards reputedly providing the often anonymous backing to over a 1000 chart singles and, in case you're wondering what he's doing here, look out for his 3 CD set The Big Jim Sullivan Trio plays jazz from The Jazz Café released in 2004. 
Or read what Martin Taylor wrote on F/B today - Just got a phone call with the sad news that my dear friend Big Jim Sullivan has passed. A true guitar legend who will be missed by us all. 

Big Jim Sullivan 1941-2012.

My personal recollection is of Big Jim doing a Fender clinic at a Newcastle Music Store and hearing a few stories afterwards that would be ill-timed to repeat here.
Big Jim was 71 and will be sadly missed by a lot of guitarists - check out the F/B response that is already filling up rapidly with comments!
