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.

Samuel Seftons' Photo Exhibition @ Kings Place

If you're passing through Kings Cross try and drop in at Kings Place, York Way. In case you don't know (I asked the girl in the internet café about half a mile away for directions and she'd never heard of it!) it's a multiplex arts development that apart from concerts both classical and jazz is currently showing a jazz photo exhibition by Samuel Seftons.
On view (and for sale) are some iconic images of the Jazz Greats. They're good - in fact they're very good - but they ain't cheap ranging from £140 for George Melly to to £995 for a shot of the Basie Band that is about 3 ft wide.
Look good over the fireplace even though you may have to sell the fireplace to buy it!
Lance.
