Bebop Spoken There

Dave Puddy: "Eventually we paid our entrance money [to Eel Pie Island] and fought our way to one of the many bars where we could buy our Newcastle Brown and retire to the back of the heaving dancefloor. There must have been lights somewhere, but my memory remains of being in some dark cavernous wonderland." - (Just Jazz July 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)

As we all know there are no live gigs taking place in the immediate future. However, any links to jazz streaming that are deemed suitable - i.e. with a professional approach - will be considered for posting.

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!
