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.

Hi Mal...
Thanks for your comment on The Greys Club Band pic - as you probably remember I had hundreds of musicians visit Julies Club while I was manager from 1974 - 1990. It was a great place in those days...were you there the night 'Dire Straits' did a free 3 hour show for the customers? or when the whole Count Basie band turned up - knockout nights !
Did you know my old mate and drummer Ron Studholme well? as you say he was quite a character.
Hope you are doing well in London
Regards
Tommy Henderson

Hello Tommy. What memories this picture brings back, like when I forgot the cabaret artists name.
All seems like a lifetime ago.
Hope you are well.

Regards,
Derek Lambert
