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.

Jazz on BBC under threat?

(Post from Kerstan of Riot Squad Publicity.)
I don't know if you have heard but there is a BBC Trust review of their music services. 
Jazz is already something of a pauper on the BBC - compared to classical and pop music at least and I think there is a real danger of the music being further marginalised. 
With cuts meaning less hours and less budget for recordings and reporting. We can't afford for this to happen.
But we're not entirely powerless - below is a link to the BBC Trust review of music services.
Please make a submission about how you feel about jazz on radio.
Is there enough ? 
Should it be protected ?
 How important do you think the BBC is to the jazz sector ?
It’s really important that we have our say at a time when there are cuts across BBC and jazz may be under threat.

And please if you are able to speed the word then please do - if enough people share this, tweet about this, blog about this and generally spread the word then more and more people will have their say and hopefully the BBC will listen.
After all they kept 6 Music because enough people shouted for it to stay - lets make sure they keep jazz on the BBC too!
