Bebop Spoken There

Belá Fleck: "...he [Chick Corea] brought out the best in musicians. Not only would you get to play with him, but you'd get to play with the best version of yourself." - (DownBeat April 2021).

Jazz Café Moments.

I couldn't make it on Saturday night but those who did tell me that Debra Milne's new band - Debra (vcl); Judith Thompson (vln); Matt Office (gtr); Ivan Scutt (bs); Rob Bates (dms) - gave an audience pleasing performance. Even old grumps proprieter Keith conceded the band a nod of approval!
Today was a rather lower profile session as many of the key players were on Splinter duty down in deepest Stockton.
However, the aforementioned Matt Office along with, Ray Truscott (bass), Stuart Findon (piano), Fiona Littlewood (vcl/ten), Doug Fielder (ten) were on hand to goose Fi's vocal along.
Doxy, You Don't Know What Love Is and Now's The Time a.k.a. Hucklebuck were a few of the tunes that lingered longer with me as I rode the 27 bus home.
Lance.
PS: Fi also blew some tasty tenor.
