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)

HCW @ Splinter @ The Bridge

Edd Carr (gtr), Christos Worsley (bs. gtr), John Hirst (dms).
A familiar and well known trio who continue to develop around original material. Although the content is mainly in a jazz/rock vein occasionally they throw in something of a rhapsodic nature which makes for a pleasing contrast.
Edd Carr knows his way around a fretboard - even a 7 string one - and he had some wild moments taking each chorus almost to the limit. On 5 string bass guitar Christos Worsley was less frenetic - cool and laid back his flowing bass-lines added just the right dimension. Christos looked totally different with his dark, curling locks shorn - he went into the barbers a boy and came out a man! A confidente explained it was one of the conditions of working part-time in Pizza Hut.
On drums John Hirst not only provided the impetus behind the other two but also wrote most of the compositions.
A good gig and a decent sized crowd.
Lance.
