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.

Remembering Clem Avery

November 2 marks the tenth anniversary of the passing of Clem Avery. A fine trumpet player, bassist and an ambassador for all that was, and is, good in the music we all love and try to share.
Clem did his fair share of sharing in the form of his playing with bands ranging in style from New Orleans to mid-period mainstream.
When Clem died, BSH was fortunate (if that's the right word) to have his great friend and fellow musician Roly Veitch share his memories which can be re-read here.
A further, more detailed link (from the original Blaydon Jazz Club website) gives yet more insight into Clem Avery.
Gone, but not forgotten.
Lance.
