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)

Jambusters @ The Jazz Café

From Central Bar my feet were down-trodden and I was heavy laden having downed a pint of Bitter and Twisted in about 0.3 seconds outside of the record for downing a pint of Bitter and Twisted.
At the Jazz Café The Dambusters was the film of the week and it brought back a few memories - not least because I once met a guy who'd actually been on the raid.
As the film drew to it's question posing close (The chap who actually invented the 'Bouncing Bomb' that did the damage said that, had he known we would lose 56 airmen, he wouldn't have invented it.)
The credits rolled and the live music got underway.
Body and Soul was lugubrious - sorry guys but it dragged and the drummer who sat in didn't help.
Things picked up when Omid took over and Andy Lee blew some impressive flute on There Will Never Be Another You. Stu was good on tenor and Fiona did some nice chanting. Fi gets better every time I hear her.
