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)

Rik Walton's Two Kinds of Music - Washington Arts Centre

This was a special preview event of Rik's current photo exhibition with a jazz, folk and roots theme.
There isn't a disappointing image among them with my personal favourite being his take on the late George Melly.
I don't think anyone has quite photographed the flamboyant Melly at his sartorial best the way Rik has - it is an outstanding portrait that captures the man to perfection.
Others include Humph, Dick Morrissey, Don Weller (another stunning image), Abdullah Ibraham plus a further 27 some of whose names were unfamiliar to me yet, nevertheless, didn't detract from the images.
My only complaint, I wished there had been more of them.
As I was due at The Sage I couldn't hang around too long and thus missed out on the wine. However, I didn't miss out on Germaine (Stanger) looking radiant and refreshed after holidaying in Cornwall - the icing on the cake.
The event runs until Sept 19 so boogie on down. Lot's of real ale in the Arts Centre Bar.
Lance.
