Bebop Spoken There

Wayne Escoffery: "My philosophy is keeping one foot in the past and one foot in the future" - DownBeat March 2018.

Scott Bradlee: “When audiences hear it [Sweet Child O’ Mine] there’s a lightbulb moment when they recognise the song’s hook, even though it’s in a different context. They’re so used to hearing it one way that it causes some cognitive dissonance. If it’s a song they’ve disparaged in the past and they now find themselves liking it, that’s really interesting to me” DownBeat March 2018.

CD Review: Andre Canniere - Coalescence

Andre Canniere (tpt); Ivo Neame (pno/acc); Hannes Riepler (gtr); Ryan Trebilcock (bs); Jon Scott (dms).
(Review by Lance)
Whirlwind seem to be moving rapidly to the forefront of British jazz labels. In recent months the King's Place epicentre has released a number of releases that may well feature in the Album of the Year scenario for those who are looking beyond yesterday but not quite as far forward as late tomorrow.
This is just such a disc.
Canniere moved to London from NYC in 2008 having worked in The Apple with Maria Schneider, Bjorkestra, Ingrid Jensen and others.- how strange that these days they are coming over here!
Canniere has an impressive library of "licks" - no change that to "Phrases" - whatever, he's got them! 
Canniere, the blurb tells me, cites 'memory and situations, both dear and dire, in composing for Coalescence. Fracking, US gun culture, the itinerant musician's life, just some of his inspirations. and they come through in this probing experience.
It's good stuff.
Austrian guitarist Riepler is another welcome import and Neame, of course, we know well from Kairos Quartet and Phronesis  - as well as the other projects he often pops up in. Trebilcock? Another who pops up in all sorts of top level gigs and does the business.
Jon Scott's played on 25 albums - need I say more? Well yes I can because his solos and fills are absolutely perfect!
Details and availability from Whirlwind.

About this blog - contact details.

Bebop Spoken Here -- Here, being the north-east of England -- centred in the blues heartland of Newcastle and reaching down to the Tees Delta and looking upwards to the Land of the Kilt.
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.
