Bebop Spoken There

Alan Barnes: "Normally you can cobble a set together with five guys on the back of an envelope over the first pint and it's just fine. Livestreaming isn't like that." - (Jazzwise July 2021)

Alan Barnes, Ken Peplowski Group. Dryfesdale Hotel - Lockerbie Jazz Festival Sunday Afternoon Oct 3

Alan Barnes/Ken Peplowski (reeds), Paul Harrison (pno), Mario Caribe (bs), Doug Hough (dms).
After collecting Herbie's trombone from Roy (Roy promises to buy you the biggest drink ever for saving his life Herbie) I dashed up the road to catch Barnes and Peplowski arriving towards the end of the first set.
They were blowing 9:20 Special - two tenors and rhythm Phew! This one jumped! Interesting to compare the two styles; Ken, light and airy, Alan, bloody, bold and resolute - the rapier versus the sabre.
Honours even I guess.
Some gems in the second set. Monk's Ask Me Now and the Clark Terry/Jimmy Hamilton variation on Perdido. More good piano from Harrison, Mario Caribe excelling once more on bass (he was with Carol on the opening night) whilst the ubiquitous Doug Hough booted them along.
More humour from out front by 'the boys' this was a grand way to end a fantastic festival - if only the organisers could have worked their magic on the weather!
Lance.
PS: There was so much going on throughout the Festival that I couldn't catch it all so apologies to those who I missed out.
