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.

A Change is Gonna Come

It’s all change tonight on Radio 2. After thirty years presenting his weekly blues programme Paul Jones has called it a day. From tonight (Monday 14), starting at eight o’clock, one hour later than Jones’ old slot, it’s The Cerys Matthews Blues Show. Cerys’ studio guest is Tom Jones who’ll be talking about his love of the blues.

Jools Holland moves from ten o’clock to nine o’clock and the boogie-woogie piano playing host is joined by Elkie Brooks. From Vinegar Joe to her solo career, Elkie will be chatting about her life in the music business. And what’s more, Elkie will be singing a number with Holland’s band.


Meanwhile over on Radio 3 at 11:00pm Jazz Now presents highlights of the Christian McBride Big Band’s exclusive British concert appearance at the recent Cheltenham Jazz Festival – read Steve T’s concert review right here on BSH.
