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.

Wilbur's Fate - a New Project.

Wilbur's Fate has a very distinctive musical sound, combining jazz with elements of folk, ambient and rock. The talented four piece are: Jordie Cooke - guitar, Matthew Forster - tenor sax/bass clarinet, David Francis - drums and John Pope on upright bass.
The group was formed by guitarist Jordie who currently resides in the Lake District. "I try and write music that's a combination of everything I like to listen to. Compositions which incorporate storylines, drama, emotion and always strong melodies.
Our musical influences range from Miles Davis, Wayne Shorter, Jeff Buckley to Radiohead."
At the moment Wilbur's Fate are working toward producing their first album together.
Their debut performance will be at the Head of Steam, on Wednesday the 17th of August, showcasing all of their new compositions.
Head of SteamWednesday 17th August 2011. Doors: 7:30pm. £4.50.
The band’s demo can be heard at: http://wilbursfate1.bandcamp.com/album/wilburs-fate-ep.

Editor: I re-posted this as, after listening to the demo tracks, I'm really impressed and suggest that you too give them a listen and then get along on Wednesday to the Head of Steam.
