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.

BBC Radio 3: Jazz All Night

(Report by Hugh C).

I seem to be permanently in arrears, listening arrears that is, these days.  I have just been catching up with Jazz AllNight, broadcast overnight (funnily enough!) during the early morning of 16th November, at the start of the EFG London Jazz Festival.

Luckily for me, BBC Sounds has offered me a short-term loan (the same offer is available to everyone) originally available for 30 days, but still available for just over two weeks.  

Highlights for me (thus far) are items on two of the Godfathers of Jazz  (BBC speak) hosted by Julian Joseph with a guest presenter:  Sonny Rollins (guest - Tony Kofi) and Herbie Hancock (guest – Jason Rebello).  

These hour long programmes include seminal tracks by the artist in question, fascinating archival interview excerpts and incisive comments by the expert guests.  Other offerings include Hermeto Pascoal in Concert, NYOS Jazz Orchestra with Yazz Ahmed, Rob Luft, Jazz Masterclass with Tim Garland, Misha Mullov-Abbado, a link up with Jazz FM, hosted by Helen Mayhew and two other delights.
