Bebop Spoken There

Charlie Musselwhite: "I used to see these posters in the windows of the [Chicago] blues clubs advertising Elmore James and Muddy Waters which knocked me out. I was making a note of the addresses and at night I'd go back and listen to the blues until 4-5 in the morning." - (Blues Matters! Aug/Sep 2021)

More Penguin Pontifications

Mal Waldron on Charles Mingus: Mingus had this idea that you didn't have to hit the note dead centre, like a bullseye, but you could place your notes round about it, inside the concentric rings but not bang in the middle. It was liberating, though not so easy for the piano player. From The Penguin Jazz Guide - The History of the Music in 1001 Albums. ISBN 978-0-141-04831-4. Lance.

Yes, singers like me do it all the time, no problem, but with mixed results!
