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.

Hamlet without the Prince of Denmark (Portugal) - even Ophelia has gone for an early bath nevertheless...

Jim McBriarty (clt.sop/vcl), Herbie Hudson (tmb/hca/vcl), Malcolm Armstrong (pno), Alan Rudd (bs), Mike Humble (dms).
...Rosencrantz and Guildenstern in the form of Herbie and Jim ensured there was no retreat - backed up as they were by Polonius, Horatio and Laertes - they held strong and there was, forsooth, many a roundelay from R and G to caress the ear drums.
This was a different Thursday afternoon at Rosie Malone's, South Shields and very much a Back to the Delta day.
To compensate for Ray Harley's absence, Jimmy Mack's soprano playing added a different dimension. Nice one Jim - Honeysuckle Rose ne'er did give such pleasing odour.
Equally Sweet was Lorraine. I just love the changes on that song - it's one of those tunes where the harmony is better than the melody! (Well that's what I think!) Herbie blew some nice harp on this one Rumour had it that Olive was babysitting - I didn't even know she was preggers! As for Ray, one can only assume that the ever increasing workload of the Maine Street Jazzmen is taking its toll - I think they are free between 4 and 5am on January 27, 2014.
Despite the above, it was still an enjoyable session
Lance.
