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.

CD Review: Mike Bogle Trio - Dr. B!

Mike Bogle (Hammond B3/vocals); Rich McLure (guitar); Ivan Torres (drums).
(Review by Lance).
Super album, great B3 sounds from Bogle; McLure perfect in this setting and Torres drives it along swingingly and yet, I'll probably never play it again even though it could be high up on the list.
Why?
I've got organ trios by Jimmy Smith, McDuff, McGriff, Preston, Shirley Scott, Mike Carr and, local boy, Gerry Richardson. Bogle is in that league but, unfortunately, the others got to my turntable first and I don't think I hear anything here that improves upon, say, Jimmy Smith's The Cat although the blast on Splanky/Route 66 runs them all close and. having said that, Bogle's vocal on 66 doesn't do him any harm either.
Walkin' has a Lou Reed kind of narrative over the tune which isn't the Walkin' we all know - it's compelling.
So, this is really one for those who've arrived late on the organ scene or, maybe, have been too long on the organ scene and want something new.
I'm not sure if this is it but organ buffs will probably want to find out.
Listen here.
Lance.
