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".

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.

The Real Maine Street Jazzmen @ The Porthole North Shields.

Ray Harley (tpt); Herbie Hudson (tmb/hca/vcl); Jim McBriarty (clt/vcl); George Richardson (pno); Alan Rudd (bs); Paul Smith (dms); Olive Rudd (vcl).
Don't get me wrong, even without Ray Harley the Maine Street mob put on a show every Thursday at Rosie Malone's but, cross over to the north side and hear them with Ray Harley on trumpet and it's even better. Plus today they had super-sub Paul Smith on drums which made for a very worthwhile ferry ride 'cross the Tyne.
Add to this the pleasure of meeting Alan's mum, wife of the late great ex Panama Jazzmen Pianist Norman Rudd, made the afternoon complete.
They'd pulled a good crowd of  "Silvers" and played some numbers we don't get on the South Side such as Riverboat Shuffle, At a Georgia Camp Meeting, Moose March and, from Olive, My Blue Heaven.
Very enjoyable afternoon which has set me up for a couple of days break in the capital.
Lance.
