Bebop Spoken There

Melanie Charles: "If I don't have a gig I'll try to get in bed by midnight. But if I do, I might end up having a jam session after. That happened a few weeks ago, and I didn't get to bed until 7 a.m.." - (The New York Times Aug. 10, 2018)

A Night of Free Improvisation at the Side Café

I'm not sure what to say about tonight so I'll say nothing. The musicians involved - Andy Champion (bs), Graeme Wilson (saxes), Paul Edis (pno/flute) and Richard Brown (dms) are, without doubt, players of the highest calibre and I've enjoyed listening to them on many occasions but, apart from isolated moments, tonight it all went over my head. I'm sure the fault is mine and perhaps one day I'll catch up - I can recall when I never cared much for the "music" of John Cage but now? I loathe it.
Normal service was resumed at the end of the set when Roly Veitch sat in on guitar along with David Carnegie (he's still here folks) on drums for a boppy chart that was more to my taste. Graeme, who'd earlier played baritone as well as a Conn underslung alto, blew gutsy tenor and Paul surprised with some delicate flute work.
