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.

Birtley at 21 - Let's 'Raes' a Glass

This Thursday (October 6) St Joseph’s, in Birtley, just off the main drag, will be having a party. Twenty-one candles on a Dixieland/New Orleans’ cake will burn brightly as Mac and Dave Rae, long-time supporters of Birtley Jazz Club, take to the stage with their New Orleans Quartet, together with special guest Don Fairley, to celebrate Birtley Jazz Club’s coming of age.
Through good times and bad times, Birtley Jazz Club’s resolute organisers present a first Thursday in the month jazz gig. Fads, fashions, a lack of public funding, nothing deters a club about to mark twenty-one years of jazz, jazz, jazz! Two sets, the first starting at half past eight, a mere three pounds admission, a raffle, a pint of Guinness, support your local jazz club. Many Happy Returns to Birtley Jazz Club!
Russell.
