Bebop Spoken There

Brian Carrick: "I contacted Max Jones of Melody Maker and offered to be his correspondent in the States, but I should have done what Ken Colyer had done, get a job on a ship and then jump ship in the States. So I didn't make it [to New Orleans] till 1973." - (Just Jazz May 1999)


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".


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.


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.

Street Corner Blues Win North East Battle of the Blues Heat.

The north east heat of this year's New Brunswick Battle of the Blues - held at Redcar - went to Street Corner Blues. Street Corner Blues, a duo comprising Chris James (vcl/gtr) and Martin Fletcher (hca), were, reportedly deserving winners.
I was delighted to hear this as I remember Martin well from my time working in Windows Music Shop where he bought many a Blues Harp, Marine Band, Special 20, Lee Oskar etc. from me over the years. I in turn bought a Hardisty racing bike from him which I still have although it hasn't been pedalled for a number of years.
We wish you both all the best for the final.
