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.

Charles Gordon/Ken Hewitt Duo @ Vermont Hotel.

Charles Gordon (pno); Ken Hewitt (ten/sop).
More an open rehearsal than a gig, Charles and Ken laid down some smooth jazz on the off chance that the residents could be seduced from their three courses to hear some music that wasn't too demanding and very easy on the ear.
Don't get me wrong, in the right setting such as The Globe or The Jazz Café on a Saturday night, these two guys could burn the place down - give them bass and drums and the fire brigade would be on standby! 
The Vermont doesn't have that kind of musical insurance so, instead, it contented me to have a pint of Wylam's Angel Bitter and listen to some good sax grooves and tasty keyboarding.
But catch these guys when the chips are down and it's 'frying tonight'!
Lance. 
Charles Gordon/Ken Hewitt Duo are at the Vermont Hotel every Tuesday (circa 9pm).
