Bebop Spoken There

Val Wilmer: "The festival [New York Musicians Festival], an impressive exercise in African-American self-reliance, had come about after the promoter George Wein had moved his annual Newport Jazz Festival to New York the previous year [1972], and paid scant attention to the avant garde." - (Wire 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)

Slim Gaillard on Norman Granz

"When I first met Norman Granz he was broke; in fact he was broke more often than the tenth commandment". (Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's wife). Back in the '80s Slim gave a memorable concert at the Corner House. Singing, playing guitar and piano; for the latter instrument he hit the keys with the knuckle side of his amazingly long fingers.
As can be seen from the photo he was not without a sartorial presence.

I was at that Slim Gaillard concert in the 80's at the Corner HOuse; in fact, I did the P.A. sound, and in fact have a good recollection of the gig! Lance see Dave next Wednesday @ Chilli gig to learn more!
