Bebop Spoken There

George Shearing: "Speaking about Johann Sebastian Bach I think he'd be a real jazzer if he were alive today. I mean any man who has two wives, twenty kids, gets kicked out of the church for being too harmonically radical and drinks beer can't be all wrong can he?" - (Crescendo March 1984.)

This is a longer version. I think it;s so funny especially about band leaders!

My current favourite is Paul Weller and Amy Winehouse 'Don't Go To Strangers' from 2006. Get out your paper hankies before you listen to Amy. We're doing this song at jazz singing just now, but not like this!
