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".

Postage

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.

Emilia Martensson @ The Spice of Life

Emilia Martensson (vcl), Jim Hart (vbs), Barry Green (pno), Phil Mulford (bs), John Blease (dms).
I arrived at Spice in time for the last set. Unfortunately I'd missed Sarah Ellen Hughes' set but managed a quick chat with her before settling down to listen to Emilia Martensson.
Emilia is Swedish and gives jazz interpretations to Swedish folk songs as well as contemporary pop songs from the likes of Paul Simon.
She does it well and even though I'd just left Norma Winstone Emilia didn't pale by comparision.
On vibes, Jim Hart continues to reinforce my opinion that he is the world's best player (and yes I know Gary Burton's in town) - his solo on Joe Henderson's Black Narcissus added an extra dimension to Emilia's performance.
Barry Green on piano also soloed well as did bass whilst drums kept the ship steady.
A fitting end to an enjoyable evening and another crowded room.
Lance.
