Bebop Spoken There

Belá Fleck: "...he [Chick Corea] brought out the best in musicians. Not only would you get to play with him, but you'd get to play with the best version of yourself." - (DownBeat April 2021).

Archive quotes.

The Blofield Experiment

Alan Glen's Baron of the Bass, Laurence Blackadder has kindly sent me a link to the above and other ensembles he is involved with. Click on The Blofield Experiment for some very listenable modern sounds from Claude Werner (tenor), Ben Gilbert (kbds), Laurence Blackadder (bs) and David Carnegie (who else? drums).
There are also some good YouTube clips of the band on the site which is very much worth a visit if you want to hear some genuinely original material.
Laurence also sent a link to David Carnegie's Extreme Measures which seems to be different to the one we already have.
Thanks Laurence for these links and the kind words you said about Bebop Spoken Here. Feel free to add your comments any time.
