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".

COFID- 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.

The Fergus McCreadie Trio @ the Eyemouth Hippodrome – March 31.

Fergus McCreadie (piano); David Bowden (bass); Stephen Henderson (drums).
(Review by Kay).
The remarkably talented Fergus McCreadie Trio captivated their audience at the Eyemouth Hippodrome on Saturday night with a selection of tracks from their debut album Turas. McCreadie’s compositions fuse jazz with the rich heritage of Scottish traditional music.  Tracks inspired by a deep connection with people and places took us from steadfast Old Harbours to the wild open spaces of Mull. The dram at Ardbeg and the jazz-imbued raucous ceilidh from The Set setting many a foot tapping. 
As with recent weather, with all four seasons in the same hour, pieces included changes in tempo, rhythm and volume. McCreadie, Bowden and Henderson are each exceptionally gifted musicians. However, it was their intuitive understanding and complete trust in each other and the freedom, verve and spontaneity afforded by jazz that kept their audience spellbound and turned this performance into something extra special.  At the end of the evening one of the Trio was heard to comment this was their best gig yet, the rapturous standing ovation at the end of their performance suggests this was a sentiment shared by many of us fortunate enough to have been there.
Thanks to Paula and Ian at the Eyemouth Hippodrome for their warm hospitality.
Kay.
