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 – I Love you Too Much by Elly Kouri

Elly Kouri, (vocals) David Pearl (piano) Dan Martin (bass) Rodney Harrison (drums) Michael McGinnis (clarinet).
(Review by Kath Jobes)
Elly Kouri started out as a rock singer but has lately turned to jazz and recently released her first Jazz CD "I Love You Too Much" (available on Amazon as CD or MP3 download).  Elly has brought together a collection of beautiful and intimate songs exhibiting several aspects of love including soothing reminiscence, heartbreak,  hope and just a spark of fire!

Elly Kouri has a pleasant Jazz voice and her sense of rhythm is excellent as she sings in a communicative and intimate way… this is lovely background music for an intimate dinner or a winter night cuddled up with your loved one and a bottle of wine in front of a roaring fire.

the tracks are as follows: Can't We Be Friends; Billie's Blues; I Love You Too Much; The Second Time Around; Do I Move You; Weep No More; Tra La La; The Blues Are Brewin'; Solitude; Please Send Me; Someone To Love; Softly; Tomorrow Is My Turn; If We Never Meet Again.
I particularly like the title track, I Love You Too Much, a beautiful - If We Never Meet Again and her sensitive interpretation of Weep No More.  A CD to add to your collection!
