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.

RIP Fritz Pauer

I must here confess I was unfamiliar with the work of Austrian jazz pianist Fritz Pauer who died on July 1 but when no less a person than singer Sheila Jordan paid the following tribute on Facebook I knew he must be something else and he was.
"I sure am in shock over Fritz Pauer's passing. What a great guy he was and what a fantastic musician. He was so caring and such a wonderful human being to be around. He made my stay in Graz less lonely for New York. I will miss you my friend. We were going to have a gig sometime next year for Axelle at Jazzland. We will have to move it to the heavens sometime in the future my friend". Sheila.
Listen to him here duetting with altoist Sheila Cooper.
Fritz Pauer was 69.
Obituary.
