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.

Tomorrow night it's Blaydon or Hoochie.

Tomorrow night at Blaydon sees the start of the Christmas Party season. Atrocious weather conditions meant that last years party had to be postponed until April by which time Santa's beard was considerably longer and greyer. Roly's taking no chances of a similar scenario this year hence the re-writing of the calendar to November 24 besides what's a month between friends!
Frank Brooker and the James Birkett Quartet provide the music which will make the journey westwards a worthwhile trip. Regulars will no doubt recall the previous gig by these five players earlier this year and look forward to a good night. Stomp off is at the slightly earlier time of 8:15 pm and admission is £6 including buffet.
Blaydon CIU Club, Garden St., Blaydon.

Meanwhile, back at Hoochie Coochie, the increasingly in demand singer Claire Kelly and her Quartet are making their debut at what is rapidly becoming the hottest spot in town. If you haven't heard her yet now's the time to catch up. With Mark Williams (gtr), Andy Champion (bs) and Adrian Tilbrook (dms) giving support you can guarantee that it will mean a thing...
8:00pm. Free.
Lance.
