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".

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.

The Matt Anderson Quartet @ The Bridge First Set.


Matt Anderson (ten); Aubin Vanns (gtr); John Marley (bs); Sam Gardner (dms).
This was another WTFWY? gig at The Bridge. The Anderson Quartet play it with a Frigidaire coolness that belies the fire burning at the heart of their compositions and they deserved to be heard by more than the scant few who tackled the stairs to the upper room of this historic pub.
Blues for Wayne (Shorter) got things rolling before kicking in with a couple of pieces from Anderson's specially commissioned Songs of the Ridings - first heard (by me) at last year's Scarborough Jazz Festival - Cold Spell and The Hermitage.
I'd liked to have hung around for the second set but circumstances decreed otherwise. However, co-pilot Russell did and his report follows soon.
