Bebop Spoken There

Paul Edis: "One of the regulars at The Gala today called me a 'turncoat' and another a 'deserter' - that's a very northern way of displaying affection in response to the news that I'm leaving the area. 'They're vicious down there mind you'. " - (Twitter January24, 2020)

Skywalkin' @ The Central Bar.

Byron Baddoo (vcls), Kenny Kirsopp (ten/alt), Steve Coady (gtr), Keith Nicholson (bs), Dave Morton(dms).
The Skywalkers have been around for a long time and they are none the worse for that.
This afternoon, at the Central Bar, they kept the blues flag flying with some dynamic numbers.
This is no ordinary blues band - this is that and a whole lot more.
Baddoo is as baaaaad a bluesman as you're ever gonna meet this side of Sunset and Vine.
Byron hollers like he was born cross the tracks in the stockyards of Chicago. He's a bluesman - full stop.
However, although I dug his blues, I felt the patter overran. The Fufu gag went well past its sell by!
My old mate Kenny blew from a blue haze and played some great bar-walkin tenor and Louis Jordon alto. In fact a lot of the material was updated Louis Jordan and they don't come much better than that. Big round for Steve who did some fantastic guitar business.
The rhythm is great and infectious - by the closing number the floor was awash with gals shaking it around a bit!
Wow!
Lance
