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).

Barry Galbraith by Roly

Barry Galbraith was regarded as one of the all time great jazz guitarists and THE studio session player in NY during the 50s & 60s. He was also a profoundly important teacher and influenced many of the guitarists who had moved to NY and who sought him out for help and guidance. His reputation was second to none. Anyone interested to learn more about him might like to look at this link.

Small world. I picked up a Gil Evans compilation album the other day. It included 3 tracks by a lady called Marcy Lutes whom I'd never heard of but who sang "Cheek to Cheek", "Aren't You Glad You're You" and "Travelin' Light" rather well.
I decided to find out more and discovered the three tracks were from her only album which was recorded in 1957 - a year after she got divorced from .... Barry Galbraith.
What happened to her afterwards is a mystery which is a shame as one reviewer described her voice as "Think Annie Ross & Doris Day". I can think along those lines any time!
