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)

Tisha's Train Ride

Today I took a trip on a train - the 11:28 from Newcastle Central en route to Kings Cross en route to the South Bank Centre for tonight's London Jazz Festival concert by David Sanborn and Joey DeFrancesco - to be precise. What could have been a routine journey turned out to be most enjoyable in the company of a lady - Tisha, short for Letitia, - who is herself a jazz fan. What's the odds on two jazz people finding themselves sitting opposite each other in a train of several hundred passengers? Admittedly Tisha was more trad orientated than myself but nevertheless it helped the journey along nicely. Thank you dear lady for your company and the peppermint sweet!
Lance.
