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.

Preview: From Vermont to Cullercoats!

Tonight at Cullercoats Crescent Club you can have a pint or three, a game of bingo, anticipate the box draw and perhaps get lucky on the club’s own lotto. Oh, yes, how could one forget? From seven o’clock, in the upstairs concert room, Chris Kaberry’s Vermont Big Band will be in concert playing a 40s swing pad!


Band MD Kaberry has been on the jazz scene for many a year and the Vermont Big Band’s sections contain a familiar face or two. What better way to spend a Saturday evening? Beer, bingo and…big band jazz! Doors 6:30, entertainment from 7:00, pay on the door (a paltry three quid), Metro home, sorted!
