Bebop Spoken There

Lew Shaw (Syncopated Times' columnist): "My interest [at 95] is in classic jazz. The numbers aren't what they were 40 years ago, but I'm encouraged by the number of young musicians playing that style and the young audiences they attract." - (The Syncopated Times January 2021)

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".

Well as no one seems to have identified anyone - my eyesight isn't that good either! I'm going to throw in Trevor Johnson, Bill Smith, Stan Martin, Jimmy Ruddick (reeds)
Marshall Walker (drums), Ian Heslop (bass) Bill Harper (pnp) and, no doubt a few others
