Bebop Spoken There

Gil Goldstein: "The first three days I was in Florida, I heard Jaco Pastorius play at a club in Fort Lauderdale, and then I heard Pat [Metheny] play in a class on jazz composition. My whole experience of the world changed in those three days." - (DownBeat, March 2020).

Back to The Delta by John Taylor

I was one of the first people to have a mains audio-cassette recorder, but only had one tape. In 1970 a short documentary on the New Orleans Club was made by BBC Look North with voice over by Mike Neville. When It was transmitted, I made an audio recording * from the black and white telly. Unfortunately, the tape ran out just as Jurich was speaking. You can recognise the Vieux Carre playing in the club. * 'Your Files then Click on NOC mp3.
