Bebop Spoken There

Tony Kofi: "I bought myself an alto saxophone and learned from mum's record collection Duke Ellington, Louis Armstrong, Doris Day" - (Jazzwise April, 2020).

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.

Ella, Dizzy and the Strictly Smokin’ Big Band

In the unlikely event that you’re not at a gig tonight (all roads lead to 54 Pilgrim Street, Newcastle) there is, as the BBC would say, ‘another chance to hear’ the Ella Fitzgerald/Dizzy Gillespie Prom, first broadcast earlier this year on Radio 3. American singer Dianne Reeves and Australian multi-instrumentalist James Morrison are joined by the BBC Concert Orchestra in a programme of Duke Ellington, Thelonius Monk, Gershwin and many others. Tune to Radio 3 at 7:30. 
Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow, tonight’s Strictly Smokin’ Big Band’s gig at Hoochie Coochie is the place to be. Doors at Warren’s gaff open at seven o’clock with Michael Lamb’s super-charged big band hitting the stage at 8:30. The MU’s enduring mantra – Keep Music Live – applies this evening, record the Ella/Dizzy Prom and head to Hoochie Coochie, it’s the only game in town!
