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.

A packed house greeted this band from Leeds at The Bridge on Sunday night. Album reviews of Roller Trio are very positive but most state that they must be even better live. I can certainly endorse that point of view, on recordings they are good but in the flesh they are absolutely fantastic. Their uncompromising blend of thrash jazz mixed with the subtle use of electronics created an energetic frenetic dynamic.
Reddin-Williams on drums created a wall of rhythm driving Wynter and Mainwaring to loft creative heights. High excitement for all those present.
The first part of the evening saw local heroes Williams, Champion and Tilbrook bound together under the band name Leash. An unbroken set incorporating some familiar jazz standards which reminded some of Hendrix’s Band of Gypsies and others of Jazz Rock pioneers Cream. All, though, were thoroughly entertained by the quality and calibre of the playing.
