Bebop Spoken There

Clare Teal: "If you're brought up in a working-class family, you haven't got money for records so everything you get hold of, you treasure, learn to love, and I loved those Ella tapes." - (Radio Times 23-29 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".

The new jazz clubbing scene

I've got this new chat up line for when I go to a jazz club - or any other club/pub. When the girl on the door says "Can I have your phone number?" quick as a flash I reply and say, "Sure, can I have yours?"

This gets varied responses: a) she gives me the number of the pub/club; b) she yawns - she's heard it all before; c) and this is the 100-1 outsider, she flutters her eyelids and says it's xxxxx xxx xxx.

Bingo! 

You enjoy the gig, these guys have never played better - you float home on a cloud.

The next day, you ring, you meet, and when you do meet, face to face, it mutually dawns that both of you were wearing masks when you first met!

"Must go, socially distancing you know (I'll try the Folk Club tomorrow)". 

"Yes me too, I've got some shopping to do".
