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.

Remembering Alan Palliser

Here's the photo of my dad in the Alley cats. 
I have asked my mam when it was taken and she thinks it's the early 60's. 
She can't remember all of their names, from left to right - 2nd left is Joe Errington, 3rd left is John Franklin, then Bob Forster on drums, then there's Bill  - possibly Wright - but she can't remember. And then my dad of course on piano. 
We have some other photos too, stored away, of the River City Jazzmen mainly, I will have a look soon and send them too. 
Thanks again for the lovely mention for my dad, he would have been chuffed
