Bebop Spoken There

Tina May: "It's a broad umbrella, jazz, but to me there has to be improvisation. If that's not there, to me, it's not really jazz." - (Jazzwise March 2021)

Jazz Art

Paul Edis has drawn my attention to the work of Alistair Graham and his impressions - some may and have said 'grotesqueries' - of well known jazz musicians past and present. They are quite unique and worth studying at leisure.

Hi Lance

Two or three years ago an arts festival in County Durham saw an exhibition of Alistair Graham's jazz art in,of all places,a vacant shop unit at the then recently opened Dalton Park Outlet Shopping development in Murton.

I bought a copy of the book which inevitably sells at such events.You're right to describe them as grotesques.

I'm reminded of the fact that Gerry Richardson played an ''in shop'' gig during the exhibiton's run at this most unlikely location.
