Bebop Spoken There

Ethan Iverson: "Oscar Peterson famously said that Bud [Powell] played just too many wrong notes. He was really critical of Bud as a player, which I think is not right." - (DownBeat March 2021)

Down on the Jersey Shore

Hi Lance,
Just thought I'd give you an update on what's happening down here on The Shore.
November 17 has Natalie Cole at the Count Basie Theatre in Redbank and Tony Bennett on the 23rd. We've also had James Cotton playing the blues in Ringwood Public Library. More blues with Richie Havens at the South Orange Performing Arts Centre.
In Madison, Nancy Nelson and Marlene Ver Planck were at the Shanghai Jazz Restaurant and Bar.
Chris Botti was at the McCarter Theatre Centre in Princeton on Monday and on Tuesday trumpet player Joe Wilder played a concert with guitarist Jack Wilkins on the Newark campus of Rutgers University.
On November 19 Mike Barris and Friends salute Louis, Django and Bessie in a concert supported by the Women's Club of Redbank and the Jersey Shore Jazz and Blues Foundation.
It's part of a series of concerts called "Reckless Steamy Nights".
So, as you can see there's quite a bit happening - shame you couldn't pop over!
Lydia.
