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.

Whitley Bay Jazz Party - November 1-3

Well it's almost here again, only a week to go. The Whitley Bay Jazz Party that was, for twenty years, known as the Whitley Bay Jazz Festival, returns next weekend. Welcome back! But, sadly, without its creator Mike Durham. Without Mike this incredible event that has brought jazz musicians and enthusiasts from across the globe wouldn't have existed. The fact that so many people have returned year after year is proof that he got it right.
This year, he isn't here to "Get it right" but, family, friends and fans are, and maybe, Mike is offering gentle guidance from above.... Patti Durham, Allan and the others involved have certainly done their bit and, looking at the program, tell me of a better jazz weekend!
Highlights are many but, to have,arguably, the worlds two greatest jazz vocalists in Shiremoor on the same weekend? Eat your heart out London, New York, Paris, Rome and anywhere else! Yes Daryl Sherman and Cécile McLorin Salvant are with us over the three days. Of course there are many many other great musicians  like Jeff and Anne Barnhart, Spats Langham and, OMG, just about every musician in Europe who knows the truth.
If you like jazz - this is the place! Hey Patti, are there any tickets left?
Lance.
PS: Don't miss the eve of party concert at the Customs House, South Shields. (Thursday October 31.)
