Bebop Spoken There

Shabaka Hutchings: "I was using social media as a way of alleviating boredom. And actually boredom is necessary for deciding what to do next!" - (DownBeat May 2021)

Radio York Swings

Liz, Our Lady in York, has brought this Sunday night program broadcast on BBC Radio York from 6-9pm to my attention. Presented by Gary Copley it offers a choice selection of jazz, swing, big band and quality vocals. Somewhere along the way he has a Harry Connick Jnr. track coming up  In the north east, Connick's name will forever be linked with Crombie's so it is perhaps a fitting choice, however accidental (accidental? I don't know - some things are unexplainable!). Currently Copley's playing some Frank Wess tracks.
Thank you Liz.
Lance.
PS: Harry's just come on singing Our Love is Here to Stay (37 minutes in)
