Bebop Spoken There

Anat Cohen: "With the tenor, it's so iconic with jazz. With the clarinet, I can improvise, but it doesn't have to be called jazz." - (DownBeat July 2019)

Djangologie @ Hoochie Coochie Thurs Jan 5.

Strumming and bowing, plucking spectacular,
Reinhardt's repertoire and originals inspired by the vernacular.
Fisk, Birkett, Shoulder and Strong,
Regaled and entertained an appreciative throng.
Django's stomp, the Autumn Leaf,
Nuages, Belleville and many more,
Bewitching melodies and inspired improvisations,
Were in abundance from all four.
Twirling and spinning with impressive coordination,
A young couple danced around the floor,
Hoochie Coochie played host to a wonderful evening,
And I'm sure there'll be many, many more.
Paul Edis.

Well done Paul. Not only a pianist and a composer but also a lyricist.
