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".

HAPPY BIRTHDAY SUSAN TOBOCMAN & ANDY PANAYI.

Saturday, June 04, 2016

Preview - This Saturday (Tonight - June 4) @ Hoochie: The Legendary Lonnie Liston Smith Band!

Tonight at Hoochie sees the return visit by one of the jazz/soul legends - Lonnie Listen Smith. Two years back he took the Hoochies and the Coochies by storm and I'm sure this time around it will still be the hottest ticket in town.
Lonnie Listen has a pedigree few living legends can match (read more) and I'm proud to say his previous visit was reviewed by yours truly on BSH.
Roll on Saturday!
Lance.

Saw him at a Caister Weekender when we were both 30 years younger. Expansions is one of THE seminal Jazz Funk records and a monster track. Ditto 'a chance for peace/ give peace a chance' and a couple of others I can't remember the title of - Sunburst?
Also played with Roland Kirk, Pharaoh Saunders and Miles so some pre-funk history there too.
