Bebop Spoken There

Gil Goldstein: "The first three days I was in Florida, I heard Jaco Pastorius play at a club in Fort Lauderdale, and then I heard Pat [Metheny] play in a class on jazz composition. My whole experience of the world changed in those three days." - (DownBeat, March 2020).


The Things They Say!

Hudson Music: Lance's "Bebop Spoken Here" is one of the heaviest and most influential jazz blogs in the UK.

And the Twain SHALL Meet!

We recently had Paul Edis playing piano with the West Jesmond Rhythm Kings and, by all accounts, doing a grand job.
Elaine Binney depped with the New Century Ragtime Orchestra and was well received.
Tomorrow, ultra modern trumpet/flugel horn player Graham Hardy is featured with the Vieux Carré Jazzmen at the Corner House.
As our man in Ashington quipped "What next? Dave Weisser with the Bell and Bucket Band?"
Joking apart it is good to see some cross-fertilisation of styles I only hope Graham is practising Magnolia's Wedding Day.

Had a chat with Paul Edis at Blaydon last week. He informed me that he also has had a gig with the New Century and recently played Saltburn with Steve Andrews and Mike Durham
