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".

The Barber of Sage Gateshead

The ageless Chris Barber chalks off another gig on Thursday (December 11) at Sage Gateshead. One thing is for sure, the man won’t be coasting. Leading a band with an enthusiasm that puts to shame some others several decades his junior, you’ll get two hours worth or so of committed music ranging from New Orleans to Ellington to the blues.
His band, including young recruit Amy Roberts, will be kept on their musical toes, no slacking allowed! The spirit of the Three Bs (now down to one) lives on; integrity, an appreciation of their life-long fan base hanging on in there and a determination to give the audience a great time. If any non-American jazz musician can be described as the ‘real deal’ it’s Chris Barber – a genuine, passionate, ambassador of the music.
The Ambassador invites you to his party this Thursday (December 11) in Hall Two at Sage Gateshead. Please be seated by eight o’clock. A few tickets remain unsold, so to avoid disappointment contact the box office on 0191 443 4661. 
Russell.
