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

11,629 (and counting) posts since we started blogging just over 12 years ago. 764 of them this year alone and, so far, 28 this month (July 8).

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.

Jolly Jazz in the Afternoon @ Cullercoats

Ian MacAulay (tmb/vcl), Derek Fleck (clt/ten/bjo), Barry Soulsby (clt/vcl), Brian Chester (pno/tmb), John Hallam (bs), Jim Mckeown (dms). A typical afternoon at Cullercoats' Crescent Club with a well balanced mix of the ancient and the not so ancient.
Guesting on clarinet, Barry Soulsby sang and played "It Ain't no Sin To Take Off Your Skin and Dance Around In your Bones." Fortunately, despite the mini heatwave, no one took him up on the suggestion.
Other delights included Ian's "Please Don't Talk About Me When I'm Gone", "Royal Garden Blues" featuring two clarinets and two trombones, Theresa, with offspring Roy backing her on piano, chanting a surprisingly delicate "Days of Wine and Roses" and Jimmy Ruddick vocalising on "Doctor Jazz".
It was all good fun - look at the faces in the photo - and the room was crowded.
Lance.
