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.

RIP Don Friedman

Pianist Don Friedman passed away on June 30. As well as leading his own small groups, Friedman played on many albums with other luminaries such a Buddy Colette, Joe Henderson, John Handy, Clark Terry and many others.
Influenced very much by Bill Evans, Friedman was, nevertheless, his own man.
This obituary come interview  on Jazzwax gives an insight into the man.
Don Friedman was 81.
Sadly missed.
