Bebop Spoken There

Gil Goldstein: "The first three days I was in Florida, I heard Jaco Pastorius play at a club in Fort Lauderdale, and then I heard Pat [Metheny] play in a class on jazz composition. My whole experience of the world changed in those three days." - (DownBeat, March 2020).

Loved the G.A.S.B. hour. Interesting to see how different artists interpreted the numbers. I did think that Kirsty McColl's "Miss Otis " was a bit strange. I always think that should be sung by a black singer...Ella does it beautifully. I had forgotton what a good voice Jack Jones had...thank God for the BBC
