Bebop Spoken There

Steve Race: "The personnel is different, notably in the inclusion of Ben Webster, always, to my mind, a rather half-hearted tenor player"

LJF News - ARTHUR H CANCELLED

Arthur H was involved in a motorcycle accident yesterday. Although he avoided serious injury, he fractured his wrist – his hand is in a plaster cast and he is unable to perform. His concert in the Queen Elizabeth Hall tonight has been cancelled: when he is recovered, we hope to reschedule this performance for 2011. Tickets will be refunded at place of purchase. Arthur Jeffes, the leader of Penguin Cafe, was due to play a special set of his own piano music as the first half of this concert. Arthur Jeffes will now play his own short concert tonight in the cabaret setting of The Front Room (in the Queen Elizabeth Hall foyer) starting at 7.45pm. Admission is free. Across Southbank Centre, tickets are still available for the gospel double bill in the Royal Festival Hall of the Golden Gate Quartet and the Harlem Gospel Choir (the Harlem Gospel Choir were featured on ITV’s Daybreak this morning), and just a few tickets remain for the Purcell Room celebration of legendary South African drummer Louis Moholo-Moholo, which features special guests Keith Tippett and Jason Yarde among the many musicians associated with this great player. We all wish Arthur H. a speedy recovery.
