Bebop Spoken There

Charlie Musselwhite: "I used to see these posters in the windows of the [Chicago] blues clubs advertising Elmore James and Muddy Waters which knocked me out. I was making a note of the addresses and at night I'd go back and listen to the blues until 4-5 in the morning." - (Blues Matters! Aug/Sep 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.

RIP Frank Sinatra Jr.

Frank Sinatra Jr. passed away yesterday (March 16) after suffering a cardiac arrest whilst on tour in Florida. Son of a legend Frank Junior was an outstanding performer himself albeit without the charisma of his illustrious father. He was in London last year although the only time I personally saw Frank Sinatra  Jr. in concert was back in the 1960s when he appeared at Newcastle City Hall with a Tommy Dorsey Band led by Sam Donahue.
He had big boots to fill, boots which probably nobody could yet, nevertheless, he worked regularly worldwide.
Amazingly his mother and his father's first wife, Nancy Barbato is still alive aged 98.
Frank Sinatra Jr. was 72.
Rest In Peace.
Lance.
