The Jazz Guide: Featuring Jazz Bands

SINCE POSTING THIS ARTICLE ON JAZZ&JAZZ IN SEPTEMBER, 2011, MOST JAZZERS WILL HAVE LEARNED THAT BERNIE TYRELL PASSED AWAY IN NOVEMBER, 2012, AFTER A SHORT BUT SERIOUS ILLNESS. THE JAZZ&JAZZ TRIBUTE TO BERNIE IS ENTITLED Farewell Bernie – Until the Next Time.

NOW LYNDA IS HERSELF IN HOSPITAL ALSO SERIOUSLY ILL AND OUR PRAYERS ARE WITH HER FOR A COMPLETE RECOVERY.

IN THE MEANTIME, TERRY CHEYNEY, WHO HAS HELPED LYNDA AND BERNIE  WITH THE JAZZ GUIDE FOR MANY YEARS, IS CONTINUING TO PRODUCE IT. HOWEVER, FOR OBVIOUS REASONS HE HASN’T YET GOT COMPLETE ACCESS TO ALL ADVERTISERS AND SUBSCRIBERS.

THEREFORE IF ANY BANDS, MUSICIANS AND CLUBS ARE MISSING OUT ON ADVERTISING OR ANY SUBSCRIBERS ARE NOT RECEIVING THEIR MONTHLY ISSUES, PLEASE CONTACT TERRY OR SARAH:
Tel: 01908 542595 • Email: t.cheney44@btinternet.com • Address: 7 Blackwell End, Pottersbury, Nr Towcester, NN12 7QE

BE ASSURED, THE JAZZ GUIDE IS STILL AND WILL CONTINUE TO BE AVAILABLE TO ITS LOYAL FOLLOWERS AND SO THE PARAGRAPHS BELOW AS RELEVANT AS EVER.

First posted in September, 2011:

JazzandJazz.com aims to open up the dazzling world of jazz to wider audiences. The plan is to feature the exquisite performances of top bands and modern day jazz greats and the exuberance of musicians in smaller bands on the jazz circuit.

In the UK, we need look no further than the monthly Jazz Guide to realise that traditional jazz is very much alive and kicking with countless bands performing in clubs, pubs, resorts and at festivals from shore to shore.

As JazzandJazz develops we hope to hear from these bands, feature their musicians and and help promote their gigs and involvement in jazz festivals.

So lets get the ball rolling and begin introducing the bands.

“We make no apology for asking you all to get out and about these venues to support the people fighting to keep YOUR music live and alive. Keep JAZZIN’.” (The Jazz Guide, September 2011 Edition)

    Have been a regular subscriber to the Jazz Guide for a number of years – heard a rumour that Bernie Tyrrell was not well – did not receive a guide for December, and no response to an email I sent to the Tyrrells before christmas.
    Is there any news?

      Hi Graham
      I’m so glad to receive your comment as this post was first featured on Jazz&Jazz back in September, 2011, and you have alerted me to update it as I have above. Hopefully it will also help broadcast the sad news about Bernie’s passing and Lynda’s illness as well inform people how to continue to contact the Jazz Guide through Terry Cheney.
      Sincerely
      Peter Butler

    Yes, we are all sad that Bernie has gone. Few people can have worked so hard on the promotion of jazz music. Congratulations to everyone who has worked on the jazz guide. I wonder at how you have kept it going. Also, I understand the policy of an exclusively paper jazz guide, but now that almost everyone has internet access, and there is an increasing preference for digital solutions, isn’t it time to produce an online Jazz Guide, even if it’s only a pdf file of a printed version? I’m abroad a lot. There must be many people like me who just need occasional access to the jazz guide. A yearly subscription would be over the top for me and would be poor ecology too. An online version would reduce the bulk of printed copies, thus reducing printing and distribution costs. I fear that the paper version will become non-viable and the whole guide will simply disappear one day. God forbid! Meanwhile if anyone can tell me where we should now send advertisements I would be grateful.

      Hello again, Mike,

      In answer to your comment I need to refer you to a later Jazz&Jazz item about the sad death of Lynda Tyrrell: http://www.jazzandjazz.com/?p=4146 in which you’ll see that Terry Cheney has taken over production of The Jazz Guide. Terry is doing an excellent job and has told me he has plans for an online version of the guide. You can email Terry at: t.cheney44@btinternet.com

      Thanks for your comments

      Peter
