Bebop Spoken There

Avishai Cohen (trumpet): "This is my main thing right now: Live in the here and now, take things one day at a time. I'm stopping everything I can, and stripping everything to the bone. I'm spending a lot of time listening to music, playing, going for walks, enjoying my kids." - (DownBeat 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)

Update on Claude Werner Quartet

After a very successful gig at Zefferellis in Ambleside- the resident sound man liked it so much he wrote a review: "The Claude Werner Quartet is neither here for the money nor going through the motions. Played with a character and style which is easily warmed to, the set had me smirking on a few occasions, due to the uplift the band could create. Engineering in an exclusively jazz gig every Saturday at Zefferellis, I work with many high quality acts and I am very aware of the difference in attitudes that create professionalism both on and off stage. The positive mood at the soundcheck was soon shared with an audience via a lively and tastefully humorous delivery. It's no wonder many of the other players on the scene have asked my opinion of the standard of playing of this band, it suggests to me that this band is the benchmark for other serious jazz players. Rightly so...." With Mark Williams replacing Mick Wright on guitar they played Matt and Phredds in Manchester on 20th June and play at the Manchester Jazz Festival on 29th July. Nicola.
