Bebop Spoken There

Freddie Gavita: "I first got into pedals when playing with Mark Fletcher's outfit Fletch's Brew. I felt with the line up I needed a bit of help" - (Jazzwise April, 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".

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: Alan Barnes' Gala Appearance - July 16

The indefatigable Alan Barnes is seemingly on the road seven days a week. At the weekend you'll find him at the Wigan Jazz Festival touring his Alan Barnes + 11 60th birthday album, a week tonight he'll be in London working on a classy gig (Daryl Sherman with Dave Green) and the following night the multi-instrumentalist will be at St James' & St Basil's Church, Newcastle working alongside Sue Ferris with the Paul Edis Trio. Why not take a night off, Alan? 

No chance! This year's Durham Brass Festival sees the Gala Big Band in action on Tuesday (July 16) and our award-winning jazz superstar just fancied joining his friend, pianist Paul Edis, for some Strictly Come BRASSing at the Gala Theatre. MD Edis has moulded the community orchestra into an impressive outfit and this festival engagement will be a salsa, swing, ballroom extravaganza featuring a 'plethora of dancers' in 'a colourful celebration of dancing and big band music'. Add Barnes to the mix together with Edis' top class bass and drums team of Andy Champion and Russ Morgan and you've got the makings of a great night out. The fun begins at 7:30, tickets £15 (£12 concs), call the box office on 03000 266 600.
