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).

Ornette Coleman says...

"Intelligence is a plot."
Mystic words from Ornette Coleman. I haven't a clue what they mean so if Ornette, or any other smart ass reads this, perhaps they will elaborate further.
I'm grateful to John Forster for drawing my attention to the above Colemanism. John is the bass player with the Eric Clapton tribute band Classic Clapton who are appearing at the Sage on 14 October.
Not exactly jazz I know but we are broadminded aren't we? and John and I did attend the same Borstalic institution.
If you're into old 'Slowhand' then this could be for you.

Lance,
Thanks very much.
Our new Keyboard player,Paul Warren from Teesside is a bit of jazzer,quite a lot of a jazzer really,some of his solos are real hot or is it cool ? I never know.

Either will do as long as they're not "Lukewarm".
Who was this Luke Warm guy anyway?
