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.

Keeping Music Live Herb Pomeroy's Way

The late trumpeter/band-leader/educator Herb Pomeroy was a member of a panel of fellow Bostonians who were asked to name their favourite jazz recordings by Boston musicians. Each gave his/her personal choices - including several of Herb's own discs - when it came to making his own selection he deliberated for a moment or two then said, angrily, "Throw them all in the rubbish bin and get out and listen to some live jazz!"
Come to think of it that isn't such a bad idea - there's a lot of live jazz just waiting to be heard. Why not get out there and listen to it warts and all rather than a sanitised product that has been re-mastered, edited, over-dubbed and maybe took a year to put together.
You could start tomorrow, as I said in the previous post but one, at the Jazz Café and The Bridge. Then on Monday Lewis Watson's at the Cherry Tree - there's a lot of it about!
Lance.
