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.

Mike Papapavlou & Ruairidh Patfield @ King’s Hall, Newcastle University. Feb 23.

Newcastle University music students met in the grand surroundings of King’s Hall in Armstrong Building to perform in front of their peers and interested members of the public. 
Classical, folk, pop, the singer/songwriter – all were represented - and on this occasion two talented musicians played a couple of rather well known jazz tunes. 
Guitarist Mike Papapavlou and electric bassist Ruairidh Patfield began with I Love Paris. Papapavlou impressed with his technique and tasteful playing of one of the great standards as bassist Patfield offered sympathetic support. Charlie Parker’s Cheryl was well within the duo’s capabilities and won the applause of fellow students – no mean feat given the studied indifference of many a student! 
Papapavlou and Patfield can be heard most Sundays at Keith Crombie’s Jazz Café jam session. These boys also figure in a quartet and I reckon an enterprising promoter could do worse than to offer them a spot.
A special mention goes to Ed Burgon (voice and guitar). A student on the folk degree course, Burgon is a star not of the future but of the here and now. American folk song, the protest song and fantastic original material were at the fingertips and on the lips of Burgon.
