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.

Ushaw’s Big Idea

Bebop Spoken Here’s roving County Durham reporter Tony Eales enjoyed an evening at Ushaw College listening to Gerry Richardson’s Big Idea. The previous evening Hoochie Coochie’s Thursday crowd danced the night away to Richardson’s ‘soul jazz’ quartet. A powerful outfit in its own right, nevertheless the quartet cedes to the big beast that is the Big Idea. Eales counted them in and out noting Adam Sinclair in the drum chair, Gordon Marshall alongside fellow trumpeter Dave Hignett and Stuart Johnson playing tenor. The diminutive Sue Ferris packed her usual big punch on baritone and Eales was particularly impressed with her fabulous flute playing. Check out www.ushaw.org for details of next month’s gig. It’s a good ‘un.
