Bebop Spoken There

Brian Carrick: "I contacted Max Jones of Melody Maker and offered to be his correspondent in the States, but I should have done what Ken Colyer had done, get a job on a ship and then jump ship in the States. So I didn't make it [to New Orleans] till 1973." - (Just Jazz May 1999)


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".


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.


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.

Preview: Sarah Ellen Hughes at the Customs House

The Shields Gazette printed this article re Sarah Ellen Hughes' forthcoming appearance at the Customs House next Friday (Oct 21.)
Having heard Sarah at the Cherry Tree and various London venues this is one gig not to be missed.
Note that start time is 8:00pm (it was erroneously stated elsewhere as 8:30pm) and that the Customs House is in South Shields and not Newcastle as shown on the flyers!
With Teesside born pianist Rick Simpson on board the backing should be pretty good too!
See you there.
