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.

Ray Chester’s Music Library Heard at Gateshead Old Town Hall. May 9

Bebop Spoken Here’s Deep South correspondent Tony Eales made the trip north to be at Gateshead Old Town Hall to hear the Vivo Swing Orchestra delve into the library of the late Ray Chester to play a selection of his award-winning arrangements. A good turn-out assembled in the grand surroundings of the former town hall to hear the north east-based ensemble play two sets of timeless numbers including Night Train, Satin Doll and Button Up Your Overcoat. The orchestra’s hope is to do it again sometime soon. Ray Chester’s music library was kindly gifted to Sage Gateshead by the Chester family to be used as an educational resource. There is much more material to be studied and performed and will serve as an invaluable learning opportunity for future generations of musicians.
