Bebop Spoken There

James Beckworth: "I studied composition but hung out with the jazzers. I was basically the kid who would be at school with my classmates but then go and hang out with the cool kids." - (Jazzwise October 2020).

Meanwhile, down on the Jersey Shore... Blue Mood

Lydia, a friend from the Asbury Park area of New Jersey - a.k.a Springsteen Country - sent me this photo from a concert she attended in a park near where she lives.
"This is Blue Mood ..... the group from the blues concert last week........The girl singer did a very good Janis Joplin. It was a young group and I felt sorry for them because the weather had been stormy in the late afternoon and only myself and a friend turned up for the show along with a few of the groups family. Lydia."
(I'm hoping for better luck at Saltwell Park, Gateshead tomorrow. Lance.)
