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.

Jean-Luc Ponty - Original Album Series


In 1974, fresh from a tour with the Mahavishnu Orchestra, Jean-Luc Ponty signed a solo deal with Atlantic Records. Throughout the next decade, Ponty recorded 12 visionary albums all of which entered the Billboard Jazz Charts in the top 5. This collection of original recordings features five of the albums recorded by Ponty during that time, including the critically acclaimed and hugely successfully Upon the Wings of Music (1975), Aurora (1975), Imaginary Voyage (1976), Enigmatic Ocean (1977) and Cosmic Messenger (1978). These recordings established Ponty as key player in the growing jazz-rock movement at the time. In 1977, Ponty charted in the top 40 with Enigmatic Ocean and again with Cosmic Messenger in 1978.
Through his work, Jean-Luc Ponty liberated the violin’s image and capabilities from its classical and folk roots. By experimenting with electronics and synthesizers, he came a pioneer of the electric violin in the 1970s, going on to become the undisputed master of his instrument in this area. On his solo work, Ponty displays his own brand of imaginative jazz fusion, unpredictable and adventurous. This set of original recordings released by Warner Jazz is a must have for fans of jazz fusion. 
Jean-Luc Ponty - Original Album Series is released on February 11
