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.

Film preview: Chicago (Freeview, 5 Star, Saturday 19)

The film of the stage musical Chicago is on 5 Star (Freeview channel 30) tonight (Saturday) at 9:00pm. Set in twenties' Chicago, Renée Zellweger stars as Roxie Hart and Catherine Zeta-Jones as Velma Kelly in Rob Marshall's 2002 box office smash. Roxie and Velma land up in prison but that doesn't stop them dreaming of showbusiness stardom. 

The jazz interest is in the soundtrack which features a host of top British jazz musicians. Some of the household names are: Alan Barnes, Pete Beachill, Dave Bishop, Stuart Brooks, Chris Garrick, Mike Lovatt, Paul Morgan, Mark Nightingale, Stan Sulzmann, Jamie Talbot and Derek Watkins.

BSH Editor-in-Chief LL has seen Chicago on stage and screen and suggests that if you're yet to catch up with it tune in tonight as it's well worth watching.
