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.

Blaydon Update

Our next concert is on Thurs 13th May - in the lounge. It features a young pianist destined for national recognition!
Thoughtful, Bill Evansish, lyrical - need I say more?
Also Adam Sinclair on drums - another of the great young players coming through. He plays with a light touch, subtlety, innate swing and a dash of humour.
Add to that the mercurial Mick Shoulder on bass and what have you got?
A great piano trio.
And all for a measly £4. What a bargain!
Changing tack - our concert of Tyneside dialect songs is on Mon. 7th June. Arrangements for two guitars (Jim Birkett & myself) plus voice (myself and definitely not James).
There's a lot more to our tradition of local song than Cushie Butterfield, Blaydon Races and Keep your feet still Geordie hinny. Some lovely ballads, humerous romps, songs of our industrial past, etc etc - even a seduction song and a 'bossa nova' song about a whippet!! - you might be surprised at the range of material.
If anyone is thinking of coming best to contact me or see me Thurs to reserve tickets as I'm about to pass the unsold tickets to the festival organisers to go on sale at the library etc.
Its £4 - all admission money to help the rapidly diminishing jazz club kitty.
Roly.

I hope I'm not taking away the element of surprise when I say that the 'Bill Evansish pianist' is, no doubt, Paul Edis.
