Bebop Spoken There

Veronica Swift: "The gigs will be coming back because people need music. Your political system and your economy can fail you but what's the one thing that people always turn to?." - (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.

Rupert Burley (Dynamic Agency): "BSH just goes from strength to strength".

Blowing in from South Tyneside

Students from Whitburn Comprehensive School were found blowing up a storm in Newcastle earlier today. As your correspondent sauntered down Northumberland Street, members of South Tyneside Music Service’s Wind Band Ensemble played Pharrell Williams’ Happy. Adjusting their clothes pegs (it had been rather windy of late) they launched into Queen’s Don’t Stop Me Now. Music education in action!!! And to think it’s half term! The photo shows a Wind Band Ensemble quartet. Good stuff, perhaps these guys will check out Bebop Spoken Here. They would be most welcome at any of the jam sessions around town. Bring your horns!!!

Wow! What a treat - and how about that baritone sax! I do hope Russell took the opportunity to hand out some Bebop Spoken Here cards while he was there ...

I think Stan Coates would have been proud.
