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.

Christmas has come a little late this year

Last October I had some business to attend to in London. During the course of which I bumped into a jovial Irishman browsing, like myself, the jazz books in Skoob Books just up from Russell Square tube station.

He gave me his card - Nigel Mooney - and mentioned he had a CD coming out. To my shame, I didn't follow it up until today when I, once more, came upon his business card.
I checked out his website and discovered he'd released his album on November 27 - a Christmas album! Not quite what I expected! Nevertheless, I listened to a track and it blew my mind!
This was the best Christmas song of them all - move over Irving Berlin!


A belated Merry Christmas Nigel see you in the bookshop - same time next (this) year!

Lance.
