Bebop Spoken There

Binker Golding: "The purest jazz was often the most danceable. Somewhere along the way, we exchanged danceability for complexity, and I see a lot of what I do as a way of giving that back to people." - (Jazziz, Winter 2020).

Blues (For the Fisherman) To Be There

Laurie Pepper put this out on Facebook... "If you're in L.A. on October 9th: Fred Seldon will be playing Art Pepper with Milcho Leviev & maybe the rest of Art's wonderful '80's band at a huge jazz event out in the Santa Monica area on Friday. It's a whole Kenton a...lumni, nostalgia thing.It's put on by the L.A. Jazz Institute http://lajazzinstitute.org/ I'm scanning and sending a bunch of music to them. I'm going to have a table there selling books and albums. Please come out to The Sheraton Four Points in Santa Monica and say hi!" Sounds good - shame it's just an ocean and a continent too far for me. Still, over here we've got Ruth and the Customs House Big Band at South Shields or the On The Outside Festival on the inside of Gateshead Old Town Hall so it should still be a 'good' Friday although, which ever gig I choose, a part of me will be in Santa Monica.
