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.

Our Man on Radio Hong Kong

Starting this Sunday on RTHK Radio 3, our man in Hong Kong, Colin Aitchison, will be presenting a radio show for 12 weeks - Vintage Chart Toppers. It will feature records that were among the top selling discs of the 1920's through to the 1950's. 
Colin tells me that they have asked him to make it a little fun with stories about the recordings. He also plans to play some long forgotten discs.
The show will last 30 mins and goes out at 8-30am in the morning Hong Kong time, which is, by my reckoning, 30 minutes past midnight in the UK. Each week Colin will post a link for anyone who'd like to tune in.
