Bebop Spoken There

Alan Barnes: "Normally you can cobble a set together with five guys on the back of an envelope over the first pint and it's just fine. Livestreaming isn't like that." - (Jazzwise July 2021)

Alexander Hawkins & Harris Eisenstadt @ King's Hall, Newcastle University.

Alexander Hawkins (pno) & Harris Eisenstadt (perc.)Newcastle University's lunchtime concert series features an eclectic mix of performers and today it was the turn of free improvisers Alexander Hawkins and Harris Eisenstadt. Drummer Eisenstadt flew in from America to reunite with Convergence Quartet compatriot Alexander Hawkins to play one set of forty five minutes largely dedicated to South African Township jazz. Joyous, at times playful, swinging improvisations inspired by composers/musicians of the stature of Chris McGregor, Abdullah Ibrahim, Mongezi Feza, Miriam Makeba, Steve Lacy and others were played with authority; Hawkins dazzling inventive, Eisenstadt the epitome of restraint playing, variously, mallets, brushes and sticks. Tonight at the Lit & Phil in Newcastle the duo are joined by Dom Lash (double bass) and Taylor Ho Bynum (cornet) in an eagerly awaited concert performance beginning at 8:00 pm.
