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".

RIP Alvin Lee

Sad to hear of the death of guitarist Alvin Lee. His work with Ten Years After is legendary and one of my abiding memories is hearing the band at Newcastle City Hall - my one and only Rock concert! His solo on Woodchopper's Ball from the album Undead is surely the best version of this tune outside of Woody Herman.
Alvin Lee died on March 6 after undergoing routine surgery.
He was 68.
