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

11,635 (and counting) posts since we started blogging just over 12 years ago. 770 of them this year alone and, so far, 34 this month (July 9).

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.

Stan Wilde's Wildcats - 1951.

Colin Aitchison sent me this recording and photo of Stan Wilde's Wildcats from 1951 at the Northern Sound Studios. The tunes are Washington and Lee Swing and Lonesome Road.
Colin's dad, Hughie Aitchison is on trumpet, my old buddy Ronnie McLean plays trombone, Brian Clarke and Alan Shipley are the clarinets. Stan Wilde, his braces hanging down as he sits at the piano gives it a wonderful period feel, Alan Brown, guitar, and Joe Ward, drums, complete the line-up.
Thank you Colin.
Lance.
