Bebop Spoken There

Anat Cohen: "With the tenor, it's so iconic with jazz. With the clarinet, I can improvise, but it doesn't have to be called jazz." - (DownBeat July 2019)

Afternoon Delights @ the Jazz Café

Another bouncy afternoon at the Jazz Café. Having been blowing for most of the civilised hours prior with The Chilli Road Band as a sideshow to spur the Great North Runners on to absolution and because of the need to get to The Sage for A Night With Sinatra I couldn't stay long but, nevertheless, I enjoyed what I heard.
This included Lyndsay Hannon singing My Funny Valentine and Is You Is or Is You Ain't My Bay? as well as Fiona Littlrwood on My Baby Likes To Bebop. There was a really good groove going on this latter number with some blistering tenor from Stuart Findon, Eric Stutt on drums and the two-fisted Peter Gilligan on piano making up for the lack of a bassist. Alan (?) on guitar also made a strong contribution.
Earlier Sarah Travena had played some attractive tenor on Autumn Leaves. It was an enjoyable hour - I even managed to talk aeroplanes with King Keith in between numbers!
Lance.
