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 Joe Evans

Saxophonist Joe Evans who died on January 17 aged 97 may never have been a jazz household name despite working from the '40s to the '60s with the likes of Lionel Hampton, Dizzy Gillespie, Cab Calloway and many other swing and bebop legends. This is understandable as he left music in 1965.
He did, however, recount that era to great effect in his 2008 autobiography Follow Your Heart (University of Illinois Press) written in conjunction with Christopher Brooks.
It is well worth chasing down.
Rest In Peace.
Obituary.
Lance.
