Bebop Spoken There

Charlie Musselwhite: "I used to see these posters in the windows of the [Chicago] blues clubs advertising Elmore James and Muddy Waters which knocked me out. I was making a note of the addresses and at night I'd go back and listen to the blues until 4-5 in the morning." - (Blues Matters! Aug/Sep 2021)

The Things They Say!

Eric Stutt on Good Friday @ The Jazz Café (On Facebook)

What a night at the Cafe wires were crossed and the whole band turned up, it was supposed to be closed, I arrived first with the Police smashing in the door,they said he (Keith) could have been in there (Massive padlock on the outside) but they have to follow through. We all went for Coffee and then a drink with Clare who turned up and we went to her Pub up the Lane, came back to the cafe as we were told Keith had turned up. Blowing a fuse ha ha I ask Keith if we should play to pay for the front door. We did and had a ball as a nice little crowd turned up, what a night.,. Dont forget folks and musicians we are on at the Hooch on Thursday please bring a crowd I am.

I walked past the Jazz cafe at lunchtime today just as two carpenters were repairing the door. I had wondered if someone had broken in overnight or perhaps it had been someone trying to get out!
