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.

A Sad Anniversary.

A year ago today (Dec. 29) the news broke of the death of Keith Crombie the iconic Fuhrer of the original Jazz Café - "The Caff" as we knew it. The number of hits on this site went through the ceiling and is unlikely ever
to be passed. This says much for the charisma of the man. A year on his name is still bandied about - sometimes with reverence other times just the opposite (probably in equal dozes). Whatever, he was a man who touched our hearts in many ways. His funeral and the wake that followed remains my gig of the year - I think it will be a one for all time.
RIP my friend. 
Lance.
