Bebop Spoken There

Dave Puddy: "Eventually we paid our entrance money [to Eel Pie Island] and fought our way to one of the many bars where we could buy our Newcastle Brown and retire to the back of the heaving dancefloor. There must have been lights somewhere, but my memory remains of being in some dark cavernous wonderland." - (Just Jazz July 2020)

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)

Garland/Champion/Tilbrook @ The Bridge - The Late Set.

As Bebop Spoken Here's Main Man set off for the snowfields of South Tyneside, Tim Garland's tenor horn did indeed conjure a very bluesy take on Round Midnight. Champion and Tilbrook went with it and we got more Monk (one can never get too much Monk) in the form of Evidence. Bill Evans' Very Early maintained the oh so good down beat mood.
Garland introduced fifteenth century plain-chant and it worked brilliantly. The tenor man drew a parallel between the ancient musical form and Blue in Green in so much as each piece can be said to be modal in structure. Miles' tune (or is it Bill Evans'?) followed and sure enough the point was well made.
A Kirkian blow out, We Free Kings (We Three Kings ?), saw all three musicians taking it home in style. The roaring finale elicited a roar for more from the appreciative crowd. The encore gave us Miles' Nardis. The evening was, as BSH Editor in Chief indicated earlier, a cracking gig. If not up there as a contender for gig of the year it was certainly a great way to end the season of gigs at Splinter @ The Bridge. You're next appointment at the Bridge Hotel is on 9th January 2011 (7:30 pm). Russell .
