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".

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.

More Charlie Smith and north east jazz memorabilia from Jean.

Well, I never knew that Charlie Smith played bass with the Emcee Five at one time. And where was the Opus 3 Club? Was it  a forerunner of the Opus 4 currently operating from the Traveller's Rest nr. Darlington?
Who were the mystery men? Freddie Ands, drums, Frankie Martinelli, alto & tenor and Joe Patterson, tenor?
Probably from the early '6os. Thank you Jean.
Lance.
