Bebop Spoken There

Jasper Høiby: "These days everybody thinks they know something about everything, and there are so many opinions being aired all over the place that aren't fully formed because there are so many platforms to say anything you want to when you feel like it." - (Jazzwise June 2020)

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)

Art Salt was of course - Art Pepper and Charlie Chan - Charlie Parker but I don't recognise the others.
I seem to remember Johnny Hodges 'moonlighting' as Cue Porter or did he just sound like Hodges?

Ferris Bender was Jackie McLean. Izzy Goldberg was Dizzy Gillespie.
