Bebop Spoken There

Jeremy Pelt: "I'm so much into melodies and into sound, and the presence of sound, that I don't necessarily want to try to play in between the cracks of a note." - (DownBeat November 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".

Barnhart goes to the movies!

(Preview by Russell)

Jeff Barnhart is something of a silent film buff. So much so the American pianist will be applying his virtuosic keyboard skills as accompanist to screenings of several silent cinema era shorts at St Augustine's Parish Centre in Darlington.
 
At half past twelve on Saturday (Sep 21) the lights will go down for a matinee treat. Popcorn at the ready, well, more likely a cuppa or a pint, settle down for a laugh-a-minute afternoon as some of the great Hollywood names grace the Larchfield Street silver screen...Harold Lloyd, Bebe Daniels, Fatty Arbuckle, Buster Keaton, household names all. 
Mr Barnhart will introduce each film (six in all) with the enthusiasm of a true fan. He knows his stuff and, no matter how many times he's watched the film, he'll chuckle along with the rest of us. Reel 1 last year proved to be a great success, this year - Reel 2 - is sure to be every bit as good.    

The programme will be as follows:

Billy Blazes, Esq. (Dir. Hal Roach, 1919, 13 mins) Harold LloydBebe Daniels

The Waiters' Ball (Dir. Fatty Arbuckle, 1916, 16 mins) Fatty ArbuckleAl St. John

The Bell Boy (Dir. Buster Keaton, 1918, 25 mins) Fatty ArbuckleBuster Keaton

INTERMISSION...
