Bebop Spoken There

Dave Puddy: "Eventually we paid our entrance money [to Eel Pie Island] and fought our way to one of the many bars where we could buy our Newcastle Brown and retire to the back of the heaving dancefloor. There must have been lights somewhere, but my memory remains of being in some dark cavernous wonderland." - (Just Jazz July 2020)

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)

In the Mood for Bitches Brew?


To celebrate the 40 years that have passed since the release of Miles Davis' Bitches Brew an American brewery - Dogfish Head Brewery - have produced an ale appropriately entitled Bitches Brew - read about it here.
I wondered idly if there were any British beers with a jazz connection and, lo and behold, last night the Bridge Hotel included In The Mood complete with a pic of Glenn in their impressive array of ales! Okay, some might say Glenn Miller wasn't 100% jazz whilst others might say the same about Miles Davis!
In fact, In the Mood was smooth and tasty - possibly brewed from the same sugar cane as clarinet reeds - like listening to Moonlight Serenade on a starry night. However, like Moonlight Serenade, too many plays/pints and it becomes a bit sacchariferous. It did sell well as by interval time they had none left.
Any more jazz related beers?
Lance.
