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.

Bird Lives in Hood Street (Newcastle)

Browsing through the music & film section of the Oxfam shop on Hood Street, Newcastle I noticed they had "Bird Lives" by Ross Russell.
As I already have a copy of this book which, incidentally, is an invaluable tome for jazz ornithologists I didn't bother checking the price but for those without a copy it may be worth popping in or giving them a ring.
I know there has been a lot of flack aimed at Oxfam from second hand book dealers - whether you agree or disagree is not relevant here - I'm merely pinpointing the whereabouts of a book that should be on everyone's bookshelf and is probably not on sale anywhere else in the locality.
Lance.
