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.

Tonight

Tonight's BBC 4 programmes are detailed elsewhere to which all I can say is "Thank God for iplayer and catch up TV". The reason being that Ex Extreme - the heir to David Carnegie's Extreme Measures - are tonight's Splinter @ The Bridge band. Well worth the fiver admission.
Meanwhile, over on Pink Lane, from late afternoon drop in on the Jazz Café Jam Session. After flagging for a week or two I'm told last week was well attended with a lot of new players sitting in and this week promises to be similar.
So bring your axe or just your ears and soak up the charismatic atmosphere of a unique venue.
Even earlier - from 4:00pm - The Narrators are at the Central Bar, Gateshead. Hannah is no longer with the band who now have Belinda Voshtina - a seriously good singer I'm told. - on vocals.
Lance.
