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).

Maine Street Jazzmen @ Rosies

Herbie Hudson (tmb.vcl/hca); Gavin Lee (clt); Brian Chester (pno); Alan Rudd (bs); Mike Humble (dms); Olive Rudd (vcl).
I've heard Gavin Lee several times yet today it was like hearing him for the first time!
Today he blew loosely and soared effortlessy above the ensemble - albeit with some harmless show-boating along the way that was well received by the crowd. In the continuing absence of Ray Harley Gavin adds that little bit of extra personality to the front-line.
On keys, Brian Chester slotted in admirably his two-handed style perfectly suited to the idiom. Olive passed her finals with honours and graduated as Doctor Jazz whilst her version of Bei Mir Bist Du Schoen raised La Belle Dame to consultancy level.
It was an enjoyable afternoon.
Lance.
