Bebop Spoken There

Kickin' the Gong Around

The 2018 Queen's Birthday honours List has three jazz names heading for the Palace and one or two non-jazz names who should, perhaps, be heading for the Tower
The jazzers are: Julian Joseph who clicks for an OBE, Orphy Robinson who scores for an MBE as does Dennis Rollins (pictured at Scarborough Jazz Festival, 2007.)
Joseph, apart from being a fine pianist and composer, is also a jazz broadcaster and, if he ever quits music, maybe he could become Head of Northern Rail. Vibesman Robinson has appeared in the northeast several times going back to 2000, maybe even earlier, whilst Dennis Rollins was here in April this year blowing 'bone with Maceo Parker at GIJF. On that performance alone, "They should have made Mister Rollins a Lord."
And, talking about honours, The All Party Parliamentary Jazz Awards are once again upon us.
Who knows but that this may be the year when BSH gets nominated in the Media Category - Well I can dream, can't I?
To cast your vote go to the group website. You've got until July 4...
