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.

Legohead @ The Bridge

Lloyd Wright (gtr), David Francis (dms), Jon Proud (bs. gtr).
After the rock 'n' blues thrash of Pete Readhead with No Time For Jive it may seem a long journey to the jazz/rock of Legoland but it wasn't that far - a mere walk across the bridge to The Bridge and more guitar virtuosity.
Lloyd Wright is an incredible player for one so young - or even old - he can do it all. He swings, he rocks, he improvs and it's all done with taste and panache not to mention technique to spare.
David Francis drives the band along like the Formula One drummer that he is whilst Jon Proud on five string is the perfect foundation for Lloyd as well as contributing some telling solos of his own.
The fact I left early was no reflection on the gig - it had been a long day...
Lance.
