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.

Jazz Hands Quintet - Black Orpheus

Continuing with the educational theme, albeit closer to home, Brent March co-leader of The Jazz Hands Quintet sent me this video of their version of Black Orpheus . All five are students on the Bmus course at Sage Gateshead and may be remembered from some appearances at the Jazz Café jams last year. They have made rapid advances as a group since then as this recording shows.
Full personnel is: Callum Mellis (trumpet); Brent March (guitar); Inês Gonçalves (keys); Jordan Maddison (bass guitar); Brad Davison (drums).
Who's to say that some of these musicians won't be playing in the Berklee Concert Jazz Orchestra in the future?
