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".

Postage

11,626 (and counting) posts since we started blogging just over 12 years ago. 761 of them this year alone and, so far, 25 this month (July 6).

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.

RUTHLESS @ The HIGHFIELD HOTEL. ZOE GILBY TRIO.

Zoe Gilby (vcl), Paul Edis (pno), Andy Champion (bs).
Ruth Lambert, like the majority of last week's crowd, phoned in sick. However, Zoe Gilby was at hand to step into Ruth's stilettos so all was not lost - although a few more posteriors in pews would have added some ambiance to the proceedings.
It was a good performance under difficult circumstances and our girl, like the trouper that she is, sang in her inimitable, recognisable, style.
Loved her version of "Straight No Chaser" and "Lullaby of Birdland" as well as "Time After Time" and who would have bet on "I Thought About You" turning up two gigs running? (Simon Spillett was the other one.)
Paul and Andy also excelled - have they ever done a gig when they didn't I wonder?
Shame that the support hasn't been sufficient to maintain a weekly jazz gig. Next one is rumoured to be 'sometime next month'.
Lance.
