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)

Some Reporters Have Priority Issues - Grammy Awards

You'd think they'd write more than 21 positive words about Esperanza Spalding. The loser makes up the headlining paragraph; the Guardian article features a shot of the loser in the clip; she even shares the limelight with the annoying little chap in the link! Where's her platform?! A case of the serious musician versus the music industry's favourite puppet.
Spleen vented. Well done to jazz!
