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".

Opus 4's 2016 season off to a flying start

Southern correspondent Tony Eales reports a successful start to Opus 4 Jazz Club’s new season at the Traveller’s Rest, Cockerton, Darlington. Scottish tenor man Graeme Wilson reunited with friends Noel Dennis, Paul Edis, Mick Shoulder and Adam Sinclair to play a well-received set to a large turn out at the West Auckland Road hostelry.
February’s concert should draw an equally healthy crowd. Pianist Dean Stockdale makes a welcome return to Opus 4 on Friday 19 February to play a gig with Dave Newton. Yes, two top class pianists, two pianos. In effect, this is a two for the price of one special offer.  
Doors open at eight o’clock for an eight thirty start. Arrive early to secure a seat. In fact, arrive early to make sure you get in!
Russell.
