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.

You Can See Miles Ahead

The 2016 Glasgow Film Festival is to screen Don Cheadle’s biopic of Miles Davis. Actor and director Cheadle plays the late, great trumpeter opposite Ewan McGregor’s journalist character Dave Brill. Miles Ahead is described as… ‘a journey through aspects of Davis’ life and loves, self-destructive urges and creative genius,’ with the film largely set in post Bitches Brew 1970s America. The soundtrack is supervised by Robert Glasper.
The Glasgow Film Theatre will screen Miles Ahead twice. First on Saturday 20 February at 21:00 and on Sunday 21 at 12:45. Selected as a ‘Glasgow Film Festival 2016 Audience Award Nominee’ Don Cheadle’s 1h 40m film is up for the public vote. Miles Ahead will be released nationwide on 1 April. It’s sure to be at your local art house cinema sometime soon thereafter. If you see the film at the Glasgow Film Festival vote Miles Ahead
