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.

Daryl Sherman Carrying Cole to Newcastle (Gateshead actually!)

Just a reminder that tickets are now on sale for our favourite songstress/pianist Daryl Sherman's concert at The Sage on Monday July 16. Featured will be numbers from her recent CD Mississippi Belle - a Cole Porter tribute I reviewed in January.
Daryl gave two cracking performances in 2010 at North Shields and Gosforth which I am sure all who attended remember vividly. On those occasions Digby Fairweather introduced Daryl as "The greatest living jazz singer" and I wouldn't dispute that! This time round John Hallam will be with her on sax and clarinet along with Roy Piercy on bass. What a night this is going to be so grab a ticket whilst you can.
Lance.
PS: On a further vocal note I understand that tickets for Cécile McLorin Salvant's Tribute to Billie (Holiday) Sage concert on Thursday Oct. 25 are going well so don't procrastinate over that one either. This concert is the curtain raiser for the Classic Jazz Party (Oct. 26-28) at the Village Hotel, Shiremoor. 206 of the 280 tickets have gone already so if you're planning on going book now rather than later.
Details here.
