Bebop Spoken There

Frank Sinatra: "Who is the worst living American? Jake LaMotta. He dumped the fight against Billy Fox, and never told his father, who bet his life savings on Jake. Lower than whale shit." - (John Brady: Frank & Ava In Love and War - Thomas Dunne Books 2015). A 1970 quote from a Pete Hamill interview.

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)

The Things They Say!

Today

As we all know there are no live gigs taking place in the immediate future. However, any links to jazz streaming that are deemed suitable - i.e. with a professional approach - will be considered for posting.

Thank you from Hilary Gilby

Dear Friends and Musicians,
I'd like to thank all those who attended Mike’s funeral.
Cullercoats RNLI tell me Mike’s friends raised £225 with their kind donations. Perhaps it’s wrong to single anyone out in particular, but I would like to say a big thank you to the members of the Customs House Big Band and to Peter Morgan, who presented the band’s generous donation. Thanks to all of you who made the huge effort, during some particularly bad weather, to pay your last respects to Mike. On behalf of the whole family: your presence helped make a very sad day more bearable.
Wishing you love, joy and peace,
Hilary.
