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.

Paul Edis & Graeme Wilson @ DJazz 2019 (Part two)

Our man on the ground, Ken Drew, captured some stunning post-concert photos of Paul Edis and Graeme Wilson at the duo's DJazz performance in Durham Cathedral - see the previous post - now Malcolm Sinclair has sent us some close-ups from the organ loft of the sacred building.


After the Nords, Rolands and Yammies that Dr. Edis often encounters on gigs the historic instrument, restored and rebuilt over the years by Harrison & Harrison of Durham, must have presented a daunting challenge. Needless to say, by all reports, he came through magnificently the sound blending seamlessly with the tenor saxophone of Wilson.
