Bebop Spoken There

Avishai Cohen (trumpet): "This is my main thing right now: Live in the here and now, take things one day at a time. I'm stopping everything I can, and stripping everything to the bone. I'm spending a lot of time listening to music, playing, going for walks, enjoying my kids." - (DownBeat June 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)

Night Lights - Gerry Mulligan

Pulled out some vinyl from the rack - Gerry Mulligan's 1963 album Night Lights. Perfect late night listening - outside of Sinatra this is as good as it gets when the bewitching hour approaches - it even has an instrumental version of Wee Small Hours.
Mulligan (bar); Brookmeyer (tmb); Farmer (tpt/flug); Hall (gtr); Crow (bs); Bailey (dms). This is as midnight cool as it gets - check out the title track on YouTube. Gerry plays piano on this one and Art Farmer on flugel is the ice in that last Martini.
Love it.
Lance.
