Bebop Spoken There

Charlie Musselwhite: "I used to see these posters in the windows of the [Chicago] blues clubs advertising Elmore James and Muddy Waters which knocked me out. I was making a note of the addresses and at night I'd go back and listen to the blues until 4-5 in the morning." - (Blues Matters! Aug/Sep 2021)

The Things They Say!

Laurie Brown Trio + Take it to the Bridge @ The Chilli

Dave Weisser (tpt/vcl), Laurie Brown (vibes), Barrie Ascroft (bs), Chris Finch (pno), Eric Stutt (dms), Robin Douthwaite (gtr), Harley Johnson (pno), Dr. Steve Summers (ten).
A good one Wednesday night, with Laurie Brown's trio, not to mention Take it t0 the Bridge!
Jim couldn't make it so Barrie Ascroft did the bass duties for both bands, and was solid throughout.
At almost the end of his trio set, Laurie invited some of us to join him for "Yardbird Suite", and just at that moment, Dr. Steve Summers showed up with his tenor sax, and played the rest of the night!
So, with Robin Douthwaite on guitar, Dr. Steve on tenor, Barrie on bass, Eric on drums, the redoubtable Chris Finch playing for the night on piano, and myself, we finished the night in high spirits, and not only the drinks!
We also had an appearance from Harley Johnson, playing with his usual panache.
Harley will be doing the middle set next Wednesday as the Harley Johnson Trio, with probably Eric Stutt on drums and Jim Crinson (or Mick Danby) on bass, exploring the Great American Songbook. His own trio, will be making an appearance with us in the near future, so watch this space.
Dave 'The' Rave.
