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)

The Things They Say!

Hudson Music: Lance's "Bebop Spoken Here" is one of the heaviest and most influential jazz blogs in the UK.

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.
