Bebop Spoken There

Gretchen Parlato: "There's always an essence of the original [tune] that should be protected. I try to find that first - it's the thing that draws me to the material" - (DownBeat, March 2021)

Sweet & Hot Orchestra @ The Discovery Museum, Newcastle. July 18th

John Carstairs Hallam's Sweet & Hot Orchestra: John Carstairs Hallam (string bass), Brian Chester (keyboards), ? (drums), Gavin Lee (reeds), Jim McBriarty (reeds), Alan Smith (trumpet), ? (trombone). A vintage steam roller, on loan from Beamish Museum, stood outside the Discovery Museum on this the 75th anniversary of the palace of science and engineering. Inside visitors were greeted by the vintage sweet and occasionally hot sounds of the Sweet & Hot Orchestra. Dance band and brass band were the sounds echoing round the cavernous hall housing the Turbinia. A vintage day out. Russell
