Bebop Spoken There

Avishai Cohen (trumpet): "This is my main thing right now: Live in the here and now, take things one day at a time. I'm stopping everything I can, and stripping everything to the bone. I'm spending a lot of time listening to music, playing, going for walks, enjoying my kids." - (DownBeat June 2020).

Dave Rempis:Ten years from now, I can see musicians streaming concerts in real time and charging a minimal amount for people to watch.” - (DownBeat September 2013)

Stu Collingwood Trio at The Side Café

It's not often Stu Collingwood can find time to fit a jazz gig into his busy schedule, he's more likely to be on the road to Amarillo with Tony Christie or plying his wares on the cabaret circuit so, when the opportunity arose to hear him in a trio setting, it was an event not to be missed.
At The Side, he impressed the listening cognescenti with his seemingly effortless runs and arpeggios as well as some big fat chords that a smaller handed person could only dream about. Encompassing tenths and beyond is no big deal for Stu who at times seemed like a cross between Peterson (Oscar) and Jarrett (Keith)
With him were Tony Abel, who played good bass as well as writing some original material, and drummer Steve Wall who was sound without being intrusive
A mix of originals, jazz classics and standards kept all factions happy.
A tenor player called Martin, I didn't catch his surname, played "Freddie Freeloader" from Miles' "Kind of Blue" album and later gave Duke's "In a Sentimental Mood" a work out. Paul Edis took over on piano and lost nothing by comparision.
Compliments to all.
Among the celebs in the audience was Andy Hudson, former leader of the legendary 'Newcastle Big Band'.
