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 Jazz Festival. Jazz Lounge. Saturday Night - August 26

(Review by Steve T/Photo courtesy of Brian Ebbatson from a previous gig.)
A few remaining revellers survived a busy day to collapse into the luxurious furniture of the Jazz Lounge. Lord Paul [Edis] led the jam session band of Mick Shoulder on bass and Russ Morgan on drums, playing a couple whilst coaxing musicians to come up and play. Ben Lawrence and Francis Tulip heeded the call on piano and guitar respectively for All the Things You Are and Blue Monk, Tulip, betraying his busy day, pulling up a chair. 
Paul returned to welcome Graeme Wilson, showing stamina after two gigs the previous day and two sets earlier. They went through Just Friends and Love is Here to Stay. 
The two youngsters then returned for Have You Met Miss Jones? but declined the closer - Cherokee.
