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 Bengt Hallberg

Another fine pianist has left us - Sweden's Bengt Hallberg. Back in the 1950s, Sweden was at the forefront of European jazz with outstanding players such as baritone saxist Lars Gullin, altoist Arne Domnerus and pianist Hallberg. They recorded with many Americans, Hallberg receiving international recognition after a series of sides with Stan Getz. I still have them on Esquire 78 rpms as well as on LP -  treasured items.
Bengt Hallberg died July 2 aged 80.
RIP.
Lance.
