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".

More History.

Continuing my 'trawl' through the Melody Makers I note that in June 1930 Albert Kendall and his Savannah Band were resident at the Oxford Galleries - the first time I've noticed their name on the Oxford Roll of Honour. Can anyone add further info?
Also, much has been made on tv this week about the re-opening of the Dreamland Amusement Park in Margate. This same MM reveals that one Maurice Burman was leading the band at the Dreamland Ballroom. Drummer Maurice later went on to become a regular columnist for MM.
