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.

CD Review: Stranahan/Zaleski/Rosato – Limitless

Colin Stranahan (drums); Glenn Zaleski (piano); Rick Rosato (bass).
A classic ‘piano trio offering’  with a hint of a modern twist.  Kicking off with the lively title track, Limitless, the trio highlight both their collective and individual talent. All tracks are penned by members of the trio apart from an enjoyable version of Monk’s Work. The album flips from quiet meditative pieces to more lively expansions. The former illustrated best by Cyclic, Vio  where we really get to hear Rosato’s fine Bass playing and my own personal favourite Motian Sickness (dedicated to Paul Motian). The penultimate piece Rock Song is not surprisingly jauntier altogether showcasing Stranahan’s great percussion work. Finally Chorale (dedicated to Fred Hersch)  sees Zaleski at his most Bill Evans like as he plays us out subtlety and gently.
This album won’t be starting any fires in the pet shop but for those who enjoy the piano trio genre it should be a most rewarding listen.
