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

11,618 (and counting) posts since we started blogging just over 12 years ago. 753 of them this year alone and, so far, 17 this month (July 5).

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.

Gig of the Year

Chris Yates instigated the "Gig of the Year" on this site and set the ball rolling with his choice of Joshua Redman Trio/Guy Barker Big Band double bill at the Sage Jazz Festival.
Since then there has been support for, among others, Sheila Jordan at The Sage, Vasilous Xenopolous at Blaydon/Cherry Tree, Ryan Quigley Sextet at Scarborough Jazz Festival, Sonny Rollins at the Barbican and Alan Glen at the Chilli.
With the sad passing of Chris, and out of respect, perhaps those who haven't yet made their choice would do so. Whilst I prefer 1 per person, if you can't make up your mind go for two plus if possible a local North-east gig.
Lance.

My favourite 'local musicians' gig this last year would be Zoe & Andy's unique duo performance at Blaydon on 15th Oct. What a treat that was.

The best gigs are those when you can play with the best guys, an appreciative audience, good grub and bevvy laid on and get good money on the night, Ray
