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".

Postage

11,626 (and counting) posts since we started blogging just over 12 years ago. 761 of them this year alone and, so far, 25 this month (July 6).

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.

Gaddafi dies in Rosie Malone's and the band play on! - Maine Street Jazzmen.

Herbie Hudson (tmb/hca/vcl); Jim McBriarty (alt/clt/vcl); George Richardson (pno/ "bjo"); Alan Rudd (bs0; Mike Humble (dms); Olive Rudd (vcl).
The TV subtitles screamed (silently!) GADDAFI IS DEAD! But in Rosie's, the fate of the Libyan dictator was of slight interest compared to Olive singing Fine and Dandy. The steak and kidney pies and sausages on the bar top may also have detracted interest from events in Tripoli!
Lonesome Road, with vocal, hot horn and harp from Herbie brought a new dimension into the band's music - dynamics! Jimmy Mac sang Avalon and stung like a bee on clarinet whilst floating like a butterfly on alto.
As ever George R was full of fun hitting the banjo button for Swannee River. Olive became My Melancholy Baby but, after the raffle, it was my turn to be melancholy too.
A Pedigree afternoon.
Lance.
