Bebop Spoken There

Jeremy Pelt: "I'm so much into melodies and into sound, and the presence of sound, that I don't necessarily want to try to play in between the cracks of a note." - (DownBeat November 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.

Alphonse Mouzon (November 21, 1948 – December 25, 2016)

Legendary Fusion drummer, Alphonse Mouzon passed away on December 25 aged 68. Although, perhaps, best known for his work with Weather Report, Mouzon performed and recorded with most contemporary names including Miles Davis, Herbie Hancock, McCoy Tyner, Donald Byrd, Gil Evans, the list is probably endless - until now that is. In a year that has seen many household names depart, Mouzon was certainly one of the ones most mourned by the jazz community. I never saw him live although I came close at the North Sea Jazz Festival in 1984. Unfortunately, his concert clashed with a one by Dizzy Gillespie and James Moody so choices had to be made...
RIP.
Lance.
