Bebop Spoken There

Joe Farnsworth: "I have to say that jazz in New York will never die. It may seem like all the music happened 3,000 years ago, but, Charlie Parker, Billy Higgins, Max Roach and all the others are still here. You can feel their presence."- (DownBeat, January 2022)

The Things They Say!

Hudson Music: Lance's "Bebop Spoken Here" is one of the heaviest and most influential jazz blogs in the UK.

Burton Agnes Jazz and Blues Festival 2019 - Breaking news

(Press release).

Burton Agnes Jazz and Blues Festival are delighted to announce their first artist confirmed for 2019 – King for a Day: The Nat King Cole Story.
Featuring the world-class live music and vocals of Atila, this unique concert celebrates the centenary of the birth of one of the greatest vocalists and entertainers of the Twentieth Century: Nat King Cole.
 
‘King for a Day: The Nat King Cole Story’
Centenary Concert
Saturday 13th July: Main Stage 6.30pm-8pm
Featuring acclaimed vocalist Atila, alongside a world-class group of musicians, this thoughtful and entertaining new show takes a fresh look at the life and work of the timeless Nat King Cole, whose vocal styling in songs such as Nature BoyUnforgettable and When I Fall in Love defined a golden era of music and earned him a place in the history of American music as one of the most iconic vocalists of all time.

Following sell-out shows at London’s Hippodrome and Ronnie Scott’s, and featuring many of Nat King Cole’s most celebrated songs, alongside stylish reworkings of his lesser-known gems, this is a unique evening of music celebrating one of music’s all-time greats!
'He has a real feel for the lyric' - Sir Michael Parkinson.

Burton Agnes Hall

Built in 1598 by Queen Elizabeth’s master mason, twenty-three generations of the same family have lived in this much-loved home, and filled the house with treasures. Today, magnificent original carvings provide a backdrop for fabulous French Impressionist paintings, contemporary furniture, tapestries and other contemporary artwork. Simon Jenkins, author of ‘England’s Thousand Best Houses, described Burton Agnes Hall as ‘the perfect English house’ and as one of England’s twenty finest homes alongside Windsor Castle,

Buckingham Palace and Chatsworth House.
