Bebop Spoken There

Freddie Gavita: "I first got into pedals when playing with Mark Fletcher's outfit Fletch's Brew. I felt with the line up I needed a bit of help" - (Jazzwise April, 2020).

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".

COVID-19

In the current climate we are doing our best to keep everyone up to date. All gigs, as we all know, are off.

However, good old YouTube has plenty to offer both old and new to help us survive whilst housebound. Plus now is a good time to stock up on your CDs.

Also, keep an eye out for live streaming sessions.

Alternatively, you could do as they do in Italy and sing from your balcony.

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.

The Rise and Rise of the House of Ushaw

Where better to have a cup of posh coffee and a cake on a Saturday afternoon than the luxurious Jazz Lounge at splendid Ushaw College?
And what a lovely surprise to find ex-Gala Big Band senior member George Hetherington in the corner tinkling the old ivories on some standards and classics from the Great American Songbook and beyond.
The lounge was busy and the college bustling with people on guided tours, so much so that we heard little of George as our short visit coincided with his break during a guides' talk by the scale model of the college just outside the lounge.
It's open every Saturday from 1 until 5 with a selection of hot and cold drinks, sandwiches, savouries and cakes and George is there throughout.
