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: The Gene Krupa Story @ The Pizza Express, Soho - July 13


Krupa, O'Day, Denmark Street - it has all the makings of a big band super gig. At lunchtime on Saturday (July 13) at the Dean Street (Soho) Pizza Express the Demark Street Big Band will be telling the story of one of the great jazz drummers, Mr Gene Krupa.

The Denmark Street Big Band, assembled and directed by Paul Burch, comprises London-based A-listers (subject to availability, these guys are so busy - West End shows, studio recording sessions, jazz gigs in and out of town!) taking on a range of projects. The latest is The Gene Krupa Story. The set list is likely to include Leave Us LeapDrum Boogie and Drummin' Man. And, what's more, the fabulous Jo Harrop will be singing Anita O'Day with the band - Bolero at the SavoyBoogie BluesLet Me Off Uptown...can't wait! MD Burch promises a Goodman-Krupa dust-up, it should be fun! Will Ms Harrop be wearing a sensational hat, a la Ms O'Day? Either way, our girl (our County Durham born girl!) is the tops. 
Russell
Doors at 12:15, first set 1:15. Tickets (£15) from 020 7437 9595.
