Bebop Spoken There

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".

COFID- 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.

Graham Hardy Trio @ Star Inn, Newcastle. August 7.

Graham Hardy (tpt/flg); Giles Strong (gtr); Mick Shoulder (bs).
A vignette. Soft, gentle dinner jazz - ideal for the Cherry Tree but possibly in the earthier setting of the Star Inn a drummer may have added the vital spark
Musically it was delightful. How can you go wrong with such tasteful players? My Romance, Black Orpheus, All The Things You Are, All Blues, You Don't Know What Love Is .The latter, played impeccably on flugel horn  - Art Farmer sprung to mind -.made for am enjoyable set played in sepulchral silence apart from the polite applause. 
Love For Sale, Have You Met Miss Jones (that gal certainly gets around) On Green Dolphin Street and In a Mellow Tone provided the bulk of the second set.
Hardy has a cool, modern, refreshing sound on both trumpet and flugel that blends easily with the eloquent guitar playing of Strong and the pivotal bass work of Shoulder.
No jammers this week.
Lance.
