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".

Preview: Clare Teal Trio @ Petworth Festival - October 29

Clare Teal (vocals); Jason Rebello (piano); Simon Little (bass); Ben Reynolds (drums).

£4.99 - the sale of the century! However, don't jump on the bus and ask for a return to Petworth - chances are the driver won't know where it is either! Fortunately, the combination of modern technology and Cov means you don't even have to step out of your front door to enjoy the vocal mastery of Ms. Teal.

Although I have a press release extolling the skills of this multi-award winning singer, it would be an insult to our readers to tell them what they already know! However, just as a reminder, think of any line from Cole Porter's list song, You're the Top. Stick a pin in and wherever it lands it applies.

I tried that and it came out as "You're sublime, you're a turkey dinner, you're the time, of a Derby winner". Well Clare is all of that and more and, maybe she'll sing the very same song on the gig! To make sure you don't miss it visit here.
