Bebop Spoken There

Avishai Cohen (trumpet): "This is my main thing right now: Live in the here and now, take things one day at a time. I'm stopping everything I can, and stripping everything to the bone. I'm spending a lot of time listening to music, playing, going for walks, enjoying my kids." - (DownBeat June 2020).

Dave Rempis:Ten years from now, I can see musicians streaming concerts in real time and charging a minimal amount for people to watch.” - (DownBeat September 2013)

Earl Scruggs, Banjo Legend Dies.

Hardly within the scope of this blog yet Earl Scruggs was such a revered and innovative musician that his passing cannot be allowed to go unmentioned. He revolutionised the approach to picking the five string (G) banjo and influenced many Bluegrass and Country players.
He also invented Scruggs tuning pegs which made different banjo tunings easier to effect.
Best known for his work with Lester Flatt the duo one many awards.
Flatt died in 1979.
Earl Scruggs died March 28, 2012 aged 88.
By coincidence the same day that The Sage released details of its Americana Festival of which the music of Earl Scruggs provided a deep influence.
RIP.
Lance.
