Bebop Spoken There

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.

Preview: Lickety Split @ The Globe - March 17

(Preview by Lance/ photo from 2018 Mouth of the Tyne Festival)

Tomorrow is the all too familiar example of waiting for one and three coming along or, in this case, two. 
My heart tells me I should be going to Blaydon to show solidarity for the club's fundraising gig - so eloquently put by Russell in the previous post. However, closer to home, Lickety Split (not to be confused with the deejay session at Hoochie next Friday) are playing a gig for the Jazz Coop at The Globe and my loyalties are divided. The Blaydon gig looks to be drawing a crowd so my suggestion is for those who don't want to motor (or bus) west they could do a lot worse than to get their kicks at 11 Railway St. (NE4 7AD).
Lickety Split has grown immensely over the past couple of years. Whilst retaining their initial 'west coast' origins, they have developed their own brand of modern jazz that stretches from LA to NY to NE4. Emerging trumpet star Callum Mellis and tenor titan Paul Gowland along with leader Eddie Bellis and his crew have made this a band to be reckoned with. If ye divn't fancy gannin further along the Scotswood Road on Sunday then this is a good alternative. It's a tough call but Lickety Split have never failed to deliver and the Globe is as good a place as any to get 'heavy laden'.

I've been told that I have a split personality - if only it were true...
Lance.
