Bebop Spoken There

Frank Sinatra: "Who is the worst living American? Jake LaMotta. He dumped the fight against Billy Fox, and never told his father, who bet his life savings on Jake. Lower than whale shit." - (John Brady: Frank & Ava In Love and War - Thomas Dunne Books 2015). A 1970 quote from a Pete Hamill interview.

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)

Jazz @ The Fell @ The Legion - Gavin Lee's New Orleans Jazz Band. Friday March 30.

Gavin Lee (clt) , Jim McBriarty (alt/vcl), Brian Chester (pno), Fred Thompson (dms/vcl), Phil Smith (bs), Beth Miller (vcl)
The weekly spot at the Fell featured Gavin's dixieland jazz .....with the soothing dulcet tones of the charming Beth Miller as an oh so welcome bonus ........
A number of Jimmy Noone tracks to kick start the night, before Beth reminded us of the recent heatwave with Summertime followed by the  soothing All of me. After the brolley parade, more from Beth with On the Sunny Side of the Street & Love Letters (straight from the heart) featuring Jim on alto sax to give us that romantic feeling .....
Uptempo next with Tight Like That and Jim showing off his undoubted virtuosity with vocals too ....
Irving Berlin's When the Midnight Choo Choo Leaves For Alabam featured Fred now on vocals, then Johnny Ray's (and several 100 others) Walking my Baby Back Home took us all too soon to the finale of Beth's Every time We Say Goodbye
We of course did not want to say goodbye, but, after another good night at the Fell, we felt that Gavin & his "boys" with the added beauty of Beth had more than satisfied our appetite for the evening.........
