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.

Maurice Summerfield sent me this excellent concert video of the Berklee Concert Jazz Orchestra. By 'coincidence' Maurice's grandson, Jonah Summerfield, is on drums. Jonah, who graduates in May drives the band along brilliantly and looks so cool - no one is going to say, "Not quite my tempo".
After the introductory waffle, there's some great playing and, like in our own backyard, great to know that so many young musicians are playing jazz. The trick is to get the ones who aren't playing to provide an audience. Having said that, the Jazz Café jams in Newcastle do have a young audience and, I gather, the Empty Shop gigs in Durham are far from empty so there is hope...
