Bebop Spoken There

Steve Race: "The personnel is different, notably in the inclusion of Ben Webster, always, to my mind, a rather half-hearted tenor player" - - New Musical Express, 16-9-1949.

Jazz Esquires @ The Porthole.

Miles Watson (tpt/vcl); Terry Dalton (tmb); Tony Winder (sax/clt); Robin Douthwaite (gtr); Stan Nicholson (bs); Laurie Brown (dms/clt). Brian Lynam (hca).
Can't really say too much about today's session as I was in the bar with James Carr - see previous post.
However, despite being pianoless, they got a good sound on the opener - It Don't Mean a Thing -  and it did have that swing! 
I heard strains of Brian Lynam playing what may have been A White Sport Coat and a Pink Carnation! Don't mock - forget the words - it's a great tune!
One of my favourite LP's is Joe Newman's The Happy Cats - the above photo isn't the picture on the sleeve!
Lance.
PS: I won a bottle of vino in the raffle!
