Bebop Spoken There

Melanie Charles: "If I don't have a gig I'll try to get in bed by midnight. But if I do, I might end up having a jam session after. That happened a few weeks ago, and I didn't get to bed until 7 a.m.." - (The New York Times Aug. 10, 2018)

Hank Mobley on Jazz Library Today

Whilst in London earlier this week I was delighted to hear some jazz being played in restaurant next door to my favourite London pub - The Chandos (Sam Smith's Old Brewery Bitter £2.03 a pint) - just off Charing Cross Road South. I noted a sign in the window of the restaurant Jazz CD's in basement.
I made my way down to the basement and came back up clutching a double CD of Hank Mobley comprising the tracks from 3 of his lesser known - but no less brilliant - Blue Note LPS. £4!
So, being very much in a Hank Mobley frame of mind - despite the fact that Humph once referred to him as 'Frank Wobley' - I was delighted to note that Mobley is the subject of this week's Jazz Library. Alyn Shipton's guest is Dave Gelly who is well qualified to talk about his fellow tenorman.
Details of program (16-17:00hrs Radio 3.)
Well worth a listen.
Lance.
