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)

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!
