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".

Sunday Service: Adrian Cox & Joe Webb live streaming from Toulouse Lautrec, London - Sept. 20

Adrian Cox (clarinet, vocals); Joe Webb (piano) 
Adrian Cox has been live streaming weekly for much of the lockdown period and today stated his intention to continue indefinitely with his self-styled, online 'Sunday Service' sessions. The majority of the clarinetist's streams have been from his London home, exceptions being a session from Gun Hill Studios in Sussex (Dave Newton was on piano) and a virtual NYC set under the auspices of Lincoln Center's Dizzy's Club. Today Cox, in the company of pianist Joe Webb, came direct from Toulouse Lautrec Jazz Club, Kennington, London.  

Can't We Be Friends? opened today's Sunday Service, Big Butter and Egg Man (Cox's vocals) followed, yes, this early afternoon performance had 'masterclass' written all over it. Seven Come Eleven (stupendous piano playing) maintained the highest of standards. At Webb's request our duo played Hoagy's Rockin' Chair which Cox said he'd never previously played, nor sang - one would never have guessed! Another new one for Cox was Kay Swift's More Than You Know, suggested to him in the week by Webb. 

Picking up the tempo the boys tore into Swing That Music: Cox's hot clarinet (and vocals) with spell-binding piano playing from his mate Joe. The hour was up, Cox promised to return next week (1:00pm), and with that the duo went out on Si Tu Savais, Ma Mère
