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)

Ruth Lambert @ The Bridge Hotel.

I'd been to the Jazz Café watching/listening to a DVD of Diana Krall Café followed by some bebop piano from Pete Gilligan with Paul Grainger on bass and Ryan on drums. Tough acts for Ruth to follow. However, as can be seen from this poetic review by Jerry Edis, follow it she did.
Lance.


Splintered
A devil moon was in the sky,
Up above The Bridge (How High?)
Got some beers, went inside –
Saw the “GASbook” open wide.
Ruth on the mic’ – Zoe on the door,
Splinter@the Bridge was back for more!
Tim, on drums, was setting the pace
Followed by Andy (Ace of Bass).
Graeme from Glasgow (well, Monkseaton)
Was blowin’ hotter than central heatin’!
Paul in “panto-rehab” mode,
Warmed the keys until they glowed!
Ruth on the mic’ – Zoe on the door,
Splinter@the Bridge was back for more!
Ruth did standards then switched over
To B-flat blues and bossanova –
Agua Beber,
Devil May Care –
East Coast / West Coast, take me there!
Ruth on the mic’ – Zoe on the door,
Splinter@the Bridge - come back for more!
