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.

This Friday @ The Sage - The Impossible Gentlemen.

Friday night promises to by an evening to remember at The Sage when The Impossible Gentlemen take to the stage in Hall Two. The "Gentlemen" are; Gwilym Simcock (piano), Mike Walker (guitar), Steve Swallow (bass) and Adam Nussbaum (drums). An Anglo-USA quartet that has created ripples - nay waves - of enthusiasm among the jazz fraternity. For me this is an eagerly awaited event - all the more so after hearing their recent Basho label CD. Four brilliant, and at times spectacular, musicians. Creative and intense in their solos. The probing interplay between the four works because, in the words of Mike Walker, "When we made this recording we were thoroughly comfortable glad to be set in a room together with our instruments in hand. We trusted each other".
That feeling comes through on the CD and I'm sure it will be even more evident on Friday night at The Sage.
Lance.
