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)

Swing Guitars - Jim Birkett & Roly Veitch at Blaydon

Jim Birkett & Roly Veitch (gtrs.) -----
The club lounge provided an intimate setting for two of the most tasteful guitarists around to play some tasty tunes.
Who can criticise "Darn That Dream", Will Hudson's immortal "Moonglow", "Nancy", Edgar Sampson's "Stomping At The Savoy", "Wave", "Bernie's Tune", Roly's own pieces, or the delightful "Skating in the Park" from the pen of John Lewis?
These were just some of the numbers the duo, who could be musical twins, performed absolutely exquisitely. Personally, I would have liked a little more volume and perhaps more uptempo numbers. However, it's difficult for me to be objective - I'm still on a roll from Tim Garland and co this afternoon and will be for days!
In many respects, tonight's recital was the perfect antidote, allowing me to come down gently.
Lance.

Hi Lance

The session was enjoyable; unhurried,relaxed. The lounge set -up could well work with the likes of Noel Dennis, Graham Hardy and Graeme Wilson with, say, Roly and Pete Stuart.
