Bebop Spoken There

Lew Shaw (Syncopated Times' columnist): "My interest [at 95] is in classic jazz. The numbers aren't what they were 40 years ago, but I'm encouraged by the number of young musicians playing that style and the young audiences they attract." - (The Syncopated Times January 2021)

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".

Jazz on your 20's wireless

The BBC's jazz output contines into 2020 with an edition of Corey Mwamba's Freeness (Radio 3, midnight Saturday) featuring music from Barry Guy's 70th birthday concert. On Sunday afternoon it's Jazz Record Requests (Radio 3) presented, as usual, by Alyn Shipton and in the evening at 9:00pm multi instrumentalist James Morrison presents Top Brass (1/4) looking at the best of modern brass band music. The Swing and Big Band Show with Clare Teal follows at ten o'clock and at eleven Jools Holland includes an appearance by YolanDa Brown (all Radio 2).

In between all this from Auntie, be sure to go into the left hand column and click on to the late night show from Chicago presented by the super cool, laid-back Denny Farrell. This week, he's playing Phineas Newborn, I Can't Get Started; Charlie Byrd, While We're Young; Kay Starr, When a Woman Loves a Man; Ruby Braff, Easy Living; Barbara Carroll, Satin Doll; Buck Clayton/Frankie Laine, That Old Feeling (complete w. verse); Gerry Mulligan Quartet, The Song is You; Frank Sinatra/Tommy Dorsey/Dick Haymes, The Song is You; Scott Hamilton, Easy to Love; Art Pepper, Powder Puff; Sarah Vaughan, After Hours and Always; Steve Allen, I Thought About You.

Who needs Spotify Playlists when you can hear such quality stuff as this? Thank you, Denny Farrell.
