Bebop Spoken There

Jasper Høiby: "These days everybody thinks they know something about everything, and there are so many opinions being aired all over the place that aren't fully formed because there are so many platforms to say anything you want to when you feel like it." - (Jazzwise 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)

RIP David 'Fathead' Newman & Leroy Cooper

Death announced yesterday of Fathead Newman aged 75. Never got to hear him live but at Scarborough this year the band 'A Tribute To Atlantic Jazz' had as its motivation the work of Newman and other Atlantic horn men. Gutsy tenor playing soaked in soul, funk and the blues; he could do tenderness too. He's up there with Brother Ray (Charles) now. Click here for "A Night in Tunisia". LA Times Obit. Leroy Cooper, who played baritone in the Ray Charles Band, died 5 days earlier aged 80. Click here for obit.
