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.

Take it to the Bridge @ The Chilli. August 18

Dave Weisser (trumpet & flugelhorn), Paul Gowland (tenor saxophone), Andy Lee (alto saxophone & wooden flute), Alan Laws (tenor saxophone), Dougie Fielder (tenor saxophone), Jim Crinson (double bass), Barrie Ascroft (keyboards), Rob Bates (drums)
It was another enjoyable evening at the Chilli. Paid my £1 in and was part of a 3 strong audience which swelled to about 10 after half time. Horn players in the band were out in force though. Tunes included Night in Tunisia, Soon (by Gershwin), Peri’s Scope, Shadow of your Smile and Au Privave. Paul Gowland was in good form, Alan Laws was playing some nice growling sax, Dougie Fielder was back on tenor after impressing on Soprano the previous week, Andy Lee played some sweet wooden flute, and Dave the Rave played some mellow flugel. The rhythm section kept the large horn line together well.
There is no Take it to the Bridge this Wednesday (August 25) due to Dave’s vacationing commitments.
