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)

Today

As we all know there are no live gigs taking place in the immediate future. However, any links to jazz streaming that are deemed suitable - i.e. with a professional approach - will be considered for posting.

Red Hot Rhythm Makers at Cullercoats

Austrailia has never been noted for its jazzmen so it was purely out of curiosity that I turned up at the Crescent Club; a venue that looks onto Cullercoats' golden sands. Hardly Bondi Beach I know but nor are the Red Hot Rhythmakers the Basie Band.
What they are, are, a very proficient and well rehearsed young band that does its thing - hot dance music of the 1920's and 1930's - very impressively.
The soloists played well without straying from the idiom and the ensembles sounded amazingly authentic for players who looked to be mainly in their twenties.
Sandra, one of three females in the band, played drums and sang in an engaging Hanshaw/Etting/Morgan manner that proved popular with the audience.
All in all, a pleasant afternoon.
