Bebop Spoken There

Noah Preminger: "The U.S.A - the greatest country in the world - didn't lift a finger to help their 3ooo-plus citizens in Morocco. We were abandoned by our own government." - (DownBeat June 2020).

Dave Rempis:Ten years from now, I can see musicians streaming concerts in real time and charging a minimal amount for people to watch.” - (DownBeat September 2013)

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 Stan Nicholson

Sad to report the death, suddenly, of Stan Nicholson. Stan played lead guitar with Rowlands Gill Based group the Silver Dollars who had a minor success with a single - Rainbow - back in 1965. More recently, Stan switched to bass guitar and could be heard with Mick Hill (later Miles Watson) and the Jazz Esquires at the Porthole, North Shields.
In the photo, taken in 2012, Stan is sitting below the mirror.
Sadly missed.
Stanley Nicholson's funeral is on Monday January 27. 11.15am at Newcastle's West Rd. Crematorium.
Lance.
