Bebop Spoken There

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.

Vinyl all the way on Record Store Day (Saturday, April 13)!

Saturday is Record Store Day. More than two hundred independent record shops will be participating in the annual celebration of all that is good about independent traders not least their commitment to stocking vinyl. Here on Tyneside, half a dozen - if not more - record stores will open their doors to eager collectors looking to snap up a limited edition of that item they've been patiently waiting to get their hands on.

For BSH readers it is likely that the 'JAZZ' section in the racks will be of particular interest. There'll be vinyl by the bucket load, live in-store music (unlikely to be jazz!), coffee and, in one case, a specially brewed limited edition beer!*   

If you're in town on Saturday, be sure to call into one or more of these establishments because you never know there could be something in stock that you've always wanted or something you never knew you wanted...
