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.

RIP Colin Farrow

Received this email from Lewis Watson: "Just  heard that my old friend and bandmate from way back, Colin Farrow passed away at the weekend, he'd been suffering for a few years with the dreadful  Motor Neurone disease, If you could post notice on your site hopefully some people who knew Colin might get to hear the sad news,*
----- 
Yes, Lewis this is sad news indeed. I remember well the Sneck sessions at the Corner House with Colin on alto and you on tenor and soprano blowing some great stuff. I would hazard a guess that Sneck was the first young modern band to make an impact on the local scene in the late 1970's/early '80's.
Thoughts are with you and Colin's  closest.
RIP.
Lance.

Sad news indeed - I was at Newcastle Music college with Colin and played guitar in Sneck. I remember him fondly as a really decent human being with a great love for jazz. I also remeber him driving me home on a few occasions ...
RIP
