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".

COFID- 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.

CD Review - Gabriele Poso: Roots of Soul.


Roots of Soul is a new album by Italian multi-instrumentalist/composer Gabriele Poso just released on German label INFRAcom!. It's described as "a summery cocktail of latin jazz, afro-jazz and soul" a description I find it difficult to disagree with. As well as being a percussionist, composer, producer, arranger and mixer Poso  also finds time to host an internet radio program - the Genuine Radio Show. On Roots of Soul he is joined by  vocal guests: Osunlade, Nailah Porter and Tanya Michelle who add distinctive vocals alongside the instrumentals which include Dizzy's Tin Tin Deo. Not a disc to make one listen to intently with furrowed brow but one to play at the more sophisticated barbecue or al fresco gathering - it won't upset the neighbours and may help you get to know them! VIDEO 1 VIDEO 2
