Bebop Spoken There

Dee Dee Bridgewater: "We found out that the estate doesn't allow any lyrics to Coltrane's music" - (DownBeat April, 2020).

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.

Maine Street Jazzmen @ Rosie's (Rosie Malone's, South Shields.)

Ray Harley (tpt), Herbie Hudson (tmb/vcl/hca), Jim McBriarty (clt/vcl), Alan Rudd (bs), Mike Humble (dms), Olive Rudd (vcl).
I was half expecting Jack Parnell to turn up this week but Eric (Delaney) mustn't have spread the word! Nevertheless, there was a good crowd in and we did have a different drummer in the form of Mike Humble. He did good.
Jim McBriarty, still on a high from last night's big band gig, played immaculate clarinet and sang Nobody's Sweetheart - shades of Whispering Jack Smith only louder.
Olive, dare I say it,? is becoming a tad predictable in her choice of numbers these days. They are, of course, sung beautifully, in particular It Had To Be You, but it would be nice to be surprised now and then - there goes my chance of ever winning the raffle again!
Ray Harley was blowing like there's no tomorrow - today - and he was on top form hitting every note on the button.
All in all a splendid afternoon.
Lance.
PS: A well known local guitarist bought me a drink. GG, as I will refer to him as, has a Hagstrom D'Aquisto.  arch-topped oval holed guitar that is looking to enhance some suitable ensemble...
