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".

Tyneside Talent

(Report by Russell) 

Today's edition (Sunday January 12) of Jazz Record Requests (Radio 3) featured a fine selection of numbers. From the opening Bei Mir Bist Du Schön (Benny Goodman) to It's About That Time (Bitches Brew-era Miles Davis) Alyn Shipton introduced classic material and lesser known compositions. Oliver Nelson (Stolen Moments) to Andy Sheppard and Espen Eriksen to Oscar Peterson to Johnny Dodds. And, thanks to a Darlington listener, proudly taking its place in the list...Paul Edis' Ushaw Ensemble (A Shepherd from Melrose)! Listen again via JRR's page on the Beeb's website.  

Radio Tyneside's award-winning programme The Geordie Hour followed JRR. An hour of music from north east born and bred and/or resident musicians is what Gary Hogg's programme is all about. This week's edition opened with a couple of bands familiar to Billy Bootlegger's patrons. First, rockabilly outfit Miss Mary and the Mr Rights then Americana from Guilded Thieves

The Doonans (from Hebburn, South Tyneside) with their version of House of the Rising Sun (recorded before the Animals scored a huge chart hit) then Bob Fox with The Hush put three local jazz musicians in the spotlight (Garry LinsleyNeil HarlandPaul Smith). There is always something of interest on Hogg's programme. Listen again on Wednesday evening (Jan 15, 7:00pm). Tune to 93.6 FM or online at: www.radiotyneside.co.uk
