Bebop Spoken There

Dick Katz: "Carmen [McRae] would say some pretty caustic things but, so what? There aren't any people who don't talk caustically to each other at some time unless they're Mother Teresa." - (Lesley Gourse: Carmen McRae Miss Jazz - Billboard Books 2001, 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.

Rupert Burley (Dynamic Agency): "BSH just goes from strength to strength".

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!
