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".

COVID-19

In the current climate we are doing our best to keep everyone up to date. All gigs, as we all know, are off.

However, good old YouTube has plenty to offer both old and new to help us survive whilst housebound. Plus now is a good time to stock up on your CDs.

Also, keep an eye out for live streaming sessions.

Alternatively, you could do as they do in Italy and sing from your balcony.

Today

As we all know there are no live gigs taking place in the immediate future. However, any links to jazz streaming that are deemed suitable - i.e. with a professional approach - will be considered for posting.

Highfield Hotel News - TONY KOFI - no less!

Paul Edis is pleased to announce the wedding of his trio to Tony Kofi in a one night stand at the Highfield Hotel, East Rainton, on Sunday May 3rd.
Admission is free - you gotta believe it - and the musical nuptials take place from 8.00 PM.
This must surely be the social event of the season, Tony Kofi is rated mega high in the jazz world and is a first class alto/soprano player.
However, to ensure the continuing presence of such super stars it is imperative that support is shown to the local bands who appear in between the 'big ones'.
Next Sunday (12th April) it is TASQ, aka 'The Alan Shearer Quartet," - I would keep that quiet in Sunderland - featuring guitar legend to be, Adam Hastings.
On the 19th, it is Roly Veitch's Trio with Noel Dennis (tpt), Neil Harland (bs) and guitar/vocal legend that already is, Roly Veitch.
On the 26th, more guitar wizardry; this time in the form of Jim Birkett as part of the Virtuoso Trio. The other two virtuosi being, of course, George McDonald (clt) and Peter Stuart (bs).
A program as mouthwatering as the menu (optional) at the Hotel.
Lance.
