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.

GLOBAL NEWSFLASH!


Tony Rose has again had to pull his band, Hermosa, out of a gig at The Globe. However, the Jazz Coop's performance person Debra Milne has, at short notice, announced the following replacement line-up for tonight's session: PAUL GOWLAND (tenor); BRADLEY JOHNSTON (guitar); PAUL GRAINGER (bass): STEVE MULLARKEY (drums).
This could be an even more exciting  prospect than the ill-fated Hermosa. 
We've heard Gowland in such disparate settings as the Strictly Smokin' Big Band;  Vieux Carré Jazzmen and various jam sessions, but, all too rarely, fronting a quartet of his peers.
So, get well soon Tony, if such be the case, and rest assured your gig is in good hands.
Lance.
