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".


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.


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.

New York Comes to The Globe

Yes! New York, New York,  is one of the songs that you'll hear at the Globe on Thursday as the Indigo Jazz Voices take to the stage to sing, (individually) a selection of swing, bop, blues and Latin. They'll be accompanied by excellent local musicians Alan Law (piano); Paul Grainger (bass); and Abbie Finn (drums).

The singers that you'll hear are Jenny Lingham, Jen Errington, David Edgar, Carrie McCullock,  and newcomer Paul Close. And lots of other songs, including Puttin' On The Ritz; Let It Snow; She's A Woman and I've Got My Love To Keep Me Warm.   

Wait, it gets better! There's mince pies and nibbles to be had at this IVJ Christmas do, and all for the meagre price of £5. So get yourself along, remember, The Globe, Thursday December 12 at 7.30pm.
