Bebop Spoken There

Dave Puddy: "Eventually we paid our entrance money [to Eel Pie Island] and fought our way to one of the many bars where we could buy our Newcastle Brown and retire to the back of the heaving dancefloor. There must have been lights somewhere, but my memory remains of being in some dark cavernous wonderland." - (Just Jazz July 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)

RIP Danny Moss - RIP Campbell Burnap

I learned today of the deaths of two well known British musicians. DANNY MOSS (pictured left) was an outstanding tenor player with a big sound reminiscent of Ike Quebec. I first heard him with the Dankworth Band of the early 60s at Newcastle City Hall and his tone stood out against the paper thin sound of some of his contemporaries. He spent a period with Humph and later received an MBE although probably not for playing in Humph's band.
In 1964 he married singer Jeannie Lambe and I recall seeing them at a memorable Corner House session in 1981. The couple later moved to Austrailia where he died 0n 29 May 2008 aged 80.
I thought I'd never actually heard CAMPBELL BURNAP live until Chris Yates reminded me that the trombone player had been at the Corner House with Pat Halcox (see photo right) in the 1980s depping for Roy Williams. His playing graced many other traditional bands including Alan Elsdon, Alex Welsh, Acker Bilk and the Midnite Follies Orchestra. I remember him most for his work as a broadcaster; particularly on THEJAZZ. Indeed, his Sunday evening program was one of the highlights of that late lamented station. His choice of music was impeccable and for me at least; very listenable.
Pancreatic Cancer got him on 30 May 2008 aged 68.


May they both rest in peace
