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.

Sonny Rollins - The Way You Look Tonight.

A Saturday afternoon way back - maybe early sixties - my first meeting with the late Charlie Carmichael.
I needed a dep for a gig. Charlie, needless to say, was working but it didn't stop him inviting me in for a coffee (or was it a beer or 3?). Inevitably, records were played including this one by Sonny Rollins - still my favourite from those early Rollins' years.
Charlie is long gone but Sonny is hanging on in and this will live forever.
Thanks to Marc Myers Jazz Wax for reminding me of this fabulous disc (did I file it under M or R?...
