Bebop Spoken There

Gretchen Parlato: "There's always an essence of the original [tune] that should be protected. I try to find that first - it's the thing that draws me to the material" - (DownBeat, March 2021)

The BSH Awards

As we approach the Santa Claus Season it's time to start thinking about what we've most enjoyed musically this year. Without stipulating categories - create your own if you wish such as "Which Jazz Promoter has the longest beard? Others may be: Band of the Year (Local/National); Musician of the Year (Local/National); CD of the year etc. In fact anything you feel is worthy of recognition. In other words, ignore categories and vote for what you like about the last 12 jazz months.

Sexxxxiest Musician/Singer/other.

I nominate Seth MacFarlane as a wonderful singer with a swinging, sexy voice. His "Laura" from the CD "Music is better than words" does it for me every time. Liz

Well Liz, I'll go along with you on that one as my male vocal preference.
