Bebop Spoken There

Brian Carrick: "I contacted Max Jones of Melody Maker and offered to be his correspondent in the States, but I should have done what Ken Colyer had done, get a job on a ship and then jump ship in the States. So I didn't make it [to New Orleans] till 1973." - (Just Jazz May 1999)

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.

Elkie Brooks @ Sage Gateshead - March 8 - Take 1

Just re-living last night's fantastic concert at Sage Gateshead by Elkie Brooks. Ann Alex's review is to follow so regard this as the prologue.
I first saw Elkie at Sunderland Empire nearly 40 years ago and I couldn't believe that the voice is still as good now as it was then - maybe even better!
A class act, a super band and a threatened punch-up between our Row K neighbours and the row in front.
What better for a night out?
Over to you Ann...
