Bebop Spoken There

Avishai Cohen (trumpet): "This is my main thing right now: Live in the here and now, take things one day at a time. I'm stopping everything I can, and stripping everything to the bone. I'm spending a lot of time listening to music, playing, going for walks, enjoying my kids." - (DownBeat 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)

Brian Carrick and the Vieux Carre Jazzmen at Cullercoats. Report by John Taylor

Full house for Brian Carrick with the Vieux Carre, lunchtime yesterday at the Crescent Club Cullercoats - perhaps it should be re-named as the Crescent City Club. Two deps - the other was Brian Chester on trombone. Four Brians and two Freds in the band so Brian Bennett was calling everyone Brian to stop confusion (They could rename the band "The Life of Brian" or something ...) My friend Alan agreed with me that Brian Carrick must be the worlds top George Lewis style player (He also has the "crack" about Lewis / New Orleans etc) He did a few numbers on tenor sax and all I could think of was scantily clad models being chased around by Benny Hill. His approach to the tenor should be quite different to the metal clarinet or it becomes "Yakety".
Never mind, it did not spoil a good session!

Thanks John. Site visitors' reports on gigs are always welcome.
When your initials are 'BC' you must have a head start when it comes to playing New Orleans style.
