Bebop Spoken There

Frank Sinatra: "Who is the worst living American? Jake LaMotta. He dumped the fight against Billy Fox, and never told his father, who bet his life savings on Jake. Lower than whale shit." - (John Brady: Frank & Ava In Love and War - Thomas Dunne Books 2015). A 1970 quote from a Pete Hamill interview.

Dave Rempis:Ten years from now, I can see musicians streaming concerts in real time and charging a minimal amount for people to watch.” - (DownBeat September 2013)

6e Fest-Jazz de Châteauneuf-du-Faou - August 1, 2010

Hi Lance, We returned from Brittany last Friday and during our time there we spent an afternoon and evening at the jazz festival at Chateauneuf-du-Faou. This is about twenty miles past Quimper and we really enjoyed the festival. There were many English people there and one of the bands, Blue Magnolia, were from Liverpool. But our favourites and a great favourite with the audience was Malo Mazurie (A brilliant young trumpet player) and The Westalk Quartet. This band played in the style of Gerry Mulligan. Their website is http://www.myspace.com/malomazurie
Here are some photographs of the bands and we shall enjoy talking about them next time we meet.

Derek and Gillian.
