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.

Jenny O - The Sage Summertyne Americana Festival.

Another lone guitarist singer/songwriter (see Peter Molinari below), facing the problem of starting the show.  This young lady is quite a skilled guitarist and I’d have liked to hear some acoustic guitar solos, rather than some of the songs, which were reflections of love.  The trouble with this style of song is that it lacks the ‘hook’ that make many jazz and pop songs memorable.  The voice was sweet and bubbly, and more spirited when using the electric guitar.  Jenny appeared to be nervous and she perhaps needs to connect with the audience a little more.
