Bebop Spoken There

Brian Carrick: "I contacted Max Jones of Melody Maker and offered to be his correspondent in the States, but I should have done what Ken Colyer had done, get a job on a ship and then jump ship in the States. So I didn't make it [to New Orleans] till 1973." - (Just Jazz May 1999)

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.

The Gangs All Here - at Rosie Malone's

Olive Rudd (vcl), Ray Harley (tpt), Herbie Hudson (tmb/hca/vcl), Jim McBriarty (clt/ten/vcl), Malcolm Armstrong (pno), Alan Rudd (bs), Mike Humble (dms).
At last, after a summer of substitutes, the Maine Street Jazzmen were finally up to full strength.
Herbie was on form blowing gutsy trombone, wailing on harmonica - and singing. This is the enigma. Olive spent a lot of time waiting in the wings when she could have been strutting her stuff. When she did get the mike - Am I Blue?, Someday Sweetheart, possibly a couple more - the music lovers shouted Bingo!
This is nothing against Herbie - a fine chanter in his own right - or indeed Jim who crooned a tasty If I Could Be With You but my feeling lies towards the why buy a dog and bark yourself syndrome?
Ray of course blew the roof off and Jim played a rather strange coloured tenor. Mike, Humble as ever, kept it moving and Alan ensured it didn't move beyond the confines of the bar.
Good Thursday Fare oh and Bass was only £2 a pint - straight, no chaser.
Lance. PS: I almost forgot to mention, I won a bottle of Rosé in the raffle so it was in fact straight with a chaser!
Eventually.
