Bebop Spoken There

Clare Teal: "If you're brought up in a working-class family, you haven't got money for records so everything you get hold of, you treasure, learn to love, and I loved those Ella tapes." - (Radio Times 23-29 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.

Jazz Hands Quintet - Black Orpheus

Continuing with the educational theme, albeit closer to home, Brent March co-leader of The Jazz Hands Quintet sent me this video of their version of Black Orpheus . All five are students on the Bmus course at Sage Gateshead and may be remembered from some appearances at the Jazz Café jams last year. They have made rapid advances as a group since then as this recording shows.
Full personnel is: Callum Mellis (trumpet); Brent March (guitar); Inês Gonçalves (keys); Jordan Maddison (bass guitar); Brad Davison (drums).
Who's to say that some of these musicians won't be playing in the Berklee Concert Jazz Orchestra in the future?
