Bebop Spoken There

Dick Katz: "Carmen [McRae] would say some pretty caustic things but, so what? There aren't any people who don't talk caustically to each other at some time unless they're Mother Teresa." - (Lesley Gourse: Carmen McRae Miss Jazz - Billboard Books 2001, 2020)

Reviews of Where do you want to be – a business planning manual for jazz music students”.

“Whether you are a musician, a representative or a music student you will find this manual to be a valuable guide and companion on your journey through the ever-changing and evolving music business.  And as a teacher… I shall definitely be using this manual with my students.”
Debbie Dickinson, Senior Lecturer Creative Practice, BA Programme Director, Culture & Creative Industries Centre, Department of Sociology, School of Arts, City, University London, 17 April 2017.

“This manual provides a comprehensive guide to structuring the day-to-day workload and of managing personal development with a strategic approach to building a successful musical career. 
The book raises the question of “How the broadening of our own industrious skills can enhance our creative opportunity”. Put so succinctly, as Hodgkins does within this clear and methodical guide, we’re left inspired to be more efficient with our time – there’s no reason why the pursuit of a creative and artistic journey, shouldn’t lead to a prosperous outcome.”
Jamil Sheriff, Curriculum Leader for Jazz, Leeds College of Music.

“When I retired from Jazz Services one of the first items of work on my action programme was to write a business planning manual for jazz music students, jazz musicians and musicians generally that would be free and available at online at: www.chrishodgkins.co.uk"
