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".

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.

Death of an Informer

Sad to report that the free listings magazine The Informer is no longer gracing the shelves of North East libraries, pubs, tourist offices and, of course, a coffee table near you. The magazine, edited by Peter Dixon, ran for 136 monthly issues before lack of advertising meant it was time to call "Time gentlemen please".
So, no longer will discerning readers be able to catch up on gigs across the genres, enjoy Joe Palooka's editorial or the Bebop Spoken Here column, written initially by myself and latterly by Russell, but fish and chips will never taste the same again.
RIP.
Lance.
