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.

Long Range Weather Report

The Scottish National Jazz Orchestra (SNJO) under the direction of Tommy Smith take on board some big names next February - Composer/arranger Vince Mendoza, saxist Bob Mintzer and former Weather Report drummer Peter Erskine (pictured left) to work with the band in a tribute to the legendary jazz/rock outfit Weather Report. Although the dates are all north of the border a trip to Edinburgh is a viable proposition for any interested parties in the north-east and beyond.
For more details of the project which is sponsored by  Creative Scotland, Grasshoppers Hotel and Arts and Business Scotland go to http://www.snjo.co.uk/index.php?id=424.
