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.

A Radio Riddle

(Preview by Russell)
Three radio programmes to tune into this week. Jazz on 3 (Monday, 11:00pm) presents highlights from this summer’s Vision Festival in New York featuring Roscoe Mitchell (Art Ensemble of Chicago). On Wednesday BBC Radio 4 Extra presents a programme first broadcast in 2005 in which Christopher Bigsby talks to Arthur Miller. Playwright Miller recorded spirituals and blues sung by North Carolina’s poor in 1941. In Arthur Miller: the Accidental Music Collector expect to hear something special. The half hour documentary will be aired three times at 6:30am, 1:30pm and again at 8:30pm. Finally, Friday Night is Music Night (Radio 2, 8:00pm) celebrates the talents of Nelson Riddle. The BBC Big Band and BBC Concert Orchestra will be joined by Clare Teal and, from America, Curtis Stigers.   
Russell.
(Ed. Note): And, of course, Gary Copley on Radio York and Leeds:6pm – 9pm every Sunday.
