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.

When Bix met Louis

 Bix Beiderbecke and Louis Armstrong met, went into the studio and recorded a session. Robert Forrest’s play Bix: Singing the Blues (Drama on 3, BBC Radio 3, Sunday 5 June, 9:00pm) ‘depicts a fictionalised version’ of their meeting. Brian Dick plays Bix and Eric Kofi Abrefa plays Louis in this welcome repeat. Original music is by Iain Johnstone.
Earlier, over on Radio 4 Extra, 4:00pm, Bonnie Greer’s musical drama Marilyn and Ella at the Mocambo charts Marilyn Monroe’s efforts in the 1950s to help Ella Fitzgerald get a booking at the Mocambo.
