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.

Francis Tulip Quintet featuring Xhosa Cole @ the Bridge Hotel, Newcastle, - August 25

Xhosa Cole (tenor sax); Francis Tulip (guitar);  Ben Lawrence (keys); Shivraj Singh (double bass); Matthew Holmes (drums).

Due to a variety of circumstances we were unable to provide a blow by blow account of this JNE gig but, it would appear to have been comparable with the band's gig, albeit with a slight change of personnel, the day previous at Ushaw. If this was indeed the case then it must have been an excellent session.
Fortunately, although there is no written review we do, thanks to Ken Drew, have a pictorial record of the event with some atmospheric shots.

To view, check out this link to Ken's photos.
