Bebop Spoken There

Lou Donaldson: "(On Art Blakey) Everything changed. Especially when the women came in, sat down in the front row, and raised their skirts above their knees. Then the drums got louder, the tempos got faster, and every tune was a drum solo" - (JazzTimes, November 2019.)

Vintage cartoon

Came across this cartoon which I cut out from the Daily Mirror about 40 years ago - I still think it's funny.

Lance, This cartoon is so funny. I think perhaps this is where I'm missing out when I practise my keyboard from my 'Piano Lessons Book One.' The book is by Fanny Waterman and someone else. I believe Fanny Waterman died recently - I wonder how many keybordists in Jazz have her to thank for basic lessons?

PS from Ann Alex. I think I'm wrong about Fanny Waterman being dead. I believe she was on 'Desert Island Discs' the other week but perhaps it amounts to the same thing!
