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 - Joe Leader: Seductive Sax.

Joe Leader (saxes); Carl Hudson (keys); Miles Kayne (gtr); Andy Tolman (bs); Westley Joseph (dms).
I'm not normally an enthusiast of "Smooth Jazz" it tends to be repetitive and lacking in emotion. However, there is an exception to every rule and this may just be it. Certainly it's smooth but there are also moments when the veneer slips and some earthy slices of R & B surface. Leader Leader is an accomplished player and he has a good repertoire of jazzisms to call upon. 
Nine classic cuts including Isn't She Lovely?, Nature Boy, Just The Two of Us and Another Star make this a very listenable album. It may not be my album of the year but it will get played again.
The official launch is this Wednesday June 27. 8:00pm at the Leicester Square Theatre, London so, if you're in town it will be well worth attending.
Lance.
