Bebop Spoken There

Charlie Musselwhite: "I used to see these posters in the windows of the [Chicago] blues clubs advertising Elmore James and Muddy Waters which knocked me out. I was making a note of the addresses and at night I'd go back and listen to the blues until 4-5 in the morning." - (Blues Matters! Aug/Sep 2021)

The Things They Say!

Hudson Music: Lance's "Bebop Spoken Here" is one of the heaviest and most influential jazz blogs in the UK.

Andy Hudson Recalls the First Soho Jazz Festival.

Andy Hudson has had many jazz associations over the years - Pianist, bandleader (Newcastle Big Band), Newcastle Jazz Festival, Cleveland Jazz Festival, JVC Jazz Festival and, the first Soho Jazz Festival.

Andy, in one of his leisure moments (he claims to have them!) has put together a few video clips of that first Soho Jazz Festival on Facebook along with his memories of the occasion which are well worth checking out - link.

As I still have the programme for the event I thought it might be worth linking the two.

There's some quite good music in it,
