Bebop Spoken There

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.

Maine Street Jazzmen @ Rosies

Herbie Hudson (tmb.vcl/hca); Gavin Lee (clt); Brian Chester (pno); Alan Rudd (bs); Mike Humble (dms); Olive Rudd (vcl).
I've heard Gavin Lee several times yet today it was like hearing him for the first time!
Today he blew loosely and soared effortlessy above the ensemble - albeit with some harmless show-boating along the way that was well received by the crowd. In the continuing absence of Ray Harley Gavin adds that little bit of extra personality to the front-line.
On keys, Brian Chester slotted in admirably his two-handed style perfectly suited to the idiom. Olive passed her finals with honours and graduated as Doctor Jazz whilst her version of Bei Mir Bist Du Schoen raised La Belle Dame to consultancy level.
It was an enjoyable afternoon.
Lance.
