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.

Demerara Jazz on Radio 4 - Jan. 7

Radio 4's commissioned series of short stories 80 Not Out (Monday to Friday this week) includes tomorrow's intriguingly titled episode Demerara Jazz. Jacqueline Crook's story is about a first time, octogenarian theatre director recalling memories of a childhood in Guyana and the jazz musicians she encountered in London. 

Jacqueline Crook's Demerara Jazz, read by Yvonne Brewster, can be heard on Radio 4 tomorrow (Thursday) at 10:45am (repeated at 7:45pm).
