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".

Postage

11,635 (and counting) posts since we started blogging just over 12 years ago. 770 of them this year alone and, so far, 34 this month (July 9).

Today

As we all know there are no live gigs taking place in the immediate future. However, any links to jazz streaming that are deemed suitable - i.e. with a professional approach - will be considered for posting.

Chapeau Chris Froome


Well, Le Tour de France is over for another year - such is my obsession with this race that I even gave Summertyne Americana at Sage Gateshead a miss today (I had more serious reasons for missing the previous 2 days).
Le tour is music on wheels. It's, at times, a pastoral symphony, grand opera, rock 'n' roll, a frantic jam session - the greatest sporting event in the world.
And, once again, we have a British winner in Chris Froome.
Bravo Chris and may the yellow jersey sit on your shoulders as proudly as it did on mine when I won the sprint to the bar at the Porthole in North Shields a few years back ahead of Derek Fleck (left) and Brian Chester!
Lance.
