Bebop Spoken There

Greg Abate: "So many sounds are ugly now. There are no harmonics, no chords. What do people hear these days? Why do things have to change from that good music?" (JazzTimes June/July 2022)

The Things They Say!

More Les Paul plus the Rosemary Squires Connection...

Click Here for live session and interview on Marian McPartland's Piano Jazz courtesy of npr radio. 57 minutes of music and chat with Les and Marian. ------- Chatting via Email with Frank Lockyer - Rosemary Squires' husband and manager - he said "...you may like to know that Rosemary has a one off recording of herself with Les Paul." Frank continued, "I think you know that Les Paul tried to persuade Rosemary to join him to replace Mary Ford who was by then quite unwell. Rosemary, who was in New York at the time working, amongst others, the Johnny Carson Show, and her then manager, visited Les at his home and saw first hand his famous studio and multi-tracking engineering. Whilst there she recorded with him 'You always hurt the one you love' which she has kept to this day. Radio Cumbria (Anne Hopper) has called for it but I do not know when it is to be broadcast. Otherwise it is certainly exclusive and only once aired on an interview Rosemary did on BBC Wiltshire several years ago. Though flattered to be asked, Rosemary was homesick and decided against his offer and returned home." Frank also mentioned that she also has rare tapes with Eddie Thompson of a broadcast they did together for the BBC...
Perhaps we'll get a 'Dewy-eyed' song title from Rosemary?
Lance.
