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.

Nigel Price Trio @ Ushaw College, October 31

There's an ineffable joy in hearing music performed with impeccable execution and the purest of intention. Musicians who are playing what they hear, who know what they want to say and believe every word. Music that swings so hard that you actually can't keep still!
Last night, the Common Room at Ushaw was the setting for an outstanding performance from Nigel Price (guitar) Ross Stanley (Hammond organ) and Matt Home (drums). A selection that included Wes Montgomery's tune '4 on 6' - (only in 6) Emily Remler's Blues for Herb, Jobim's 'most miserable tune' Gentle Rain alongside Price originals and other standards.
This was the first ever jazz concert at Ushaw, and what a way to start! On December 12th the plucking marvellous Djangologie are coming to Ushaw, and there are more gigs in the spring (see below).
27th February - Paul Edis Sextet
6th March - Virtuoso Trio  
17th April - Customs House Big Band
1st May - James Birkett and Bradley Johnston.
Paul E.
