Bebop Spoken There
Roland Hanna: "To me, music is a sort of a help-mate for human beings to get through life with; it's a valve for us to release some of the pressure that builds up." - (Crescendo June 1980).
Rodney Whitaker: “I started playing jazz because a neighbor saw me carrying my upright bass home, and he made me know how important it was that I was part of a legacy – informed me about Paul Chambers and Ron Carter.” – (Down Beat November 2014).

About this blog - contact details.
Not a very original title, I know; not even an accurate one as my taste, whilst centred around the music of Bird and Diz, extends in many directions and I listen to everything from King Oliver to Chick Corea and beyond. Not forgetting the Great American Songbook the contents of which has provided the inspiration for much great jazz and quality popular singing for round about a century.
The idea of this blog is for you to share your thoughts and pass on your comments on discs, gigs, jazz - music in general. If you've been to a gig/concert or heard a CD that knocked you sideways please share your views with us. Tell us about your favourites, your memories, your dislikes.
