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.

RIP Bunny Sigler

The news that Philadelphia soul singer Bunny Sigler has passed away comes as something of a shock. It was only this August that I enthusiastically reviewed his then newly released single Angel Eyes. That I don't normally review singles says much for this one and for Bunny Sigler. I was knocked out and eagerly looked forward to the album that it was to be part of.
Too little, too late, I should have checked him out years ago. Maybe not a jazz singer (whatever that is!) but he could handle a lyric with the best of them.
Bunny Sigler died on October 6. He was 76.
Sadly missed.
Lance.
Obituary.

Quite a big deal on the Northern Soul scene though 'don't make me wait too long' is the only one I can think of at the moment. Was 'Follow your heart' him as well?
He was a jobbing singer and songwriter who did an album at Philly many rate so probably time to check it out.
I'm sure he wrote or co-wrote 'Giving it Back' for Phil Hurt, one of the last really soulful disco records.
