Bebop Spoken There

Paul Edis: "One of the regulars at The Gala today called me a 'turncoat' and another a 'deserter' - that's a very northern way of displaying affection in response to the news that I'm leaving the area. 'They're vicious down there mind you'. " - (Twitter January24, 2020)

R.I.P. Bob Brookmeyer.

Three days before his 82nd birthday, Roberta Gamberini has broken the news on Facebook of the death of Bob Brookmeyer earlier today (Dec. 16).
Arguably jazz's finest valve trombone player he was also a capable pianist and a very fine composer and arranger frequently associated with Gerry Mulligan. Brookmeyer also recorded with Stan Getz, Clark Terry and countless others including this live duo track with Jim Hall on guitar.
Sadly missed - he was one of the greats.
Obituary.
Lance.
