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)

The Things They Say!

Hudson Music: Lance's "Bebop Spoken Here" is one of the heaviest and most influential jazz blogs in the UK.

Royal Garden Blues - Ruth Digs

I'm Putting all My Eggs in One Basket, Garden in the Rain, various Rose songs, Diggin' My Potatoes, Green Onions, Lettuce Fall in Love, Ain't Nobody Here But Us Chickens, are just some of the songs new allotment holder Ruth Lambert (pictured left) might now be singing. Seems as though the green fingered Ruth has acquired "Just a plot, not a lot of land" and will be living The Good Life.
Any more suggestions of songs she may be singing?
Lance.
PS: Trombonist, pianist, Brian Chester has half of an adjoining plot so who knows but that there may be a few jam sessions taking place on this stretch of The Good Earth!

With Ruth's Skylark overhead I think that would be jazz paradise!

No doubt Ruth will receive the traditional Easter
greeting from fellow allotment owners - "Are ya tatties in yet, pet?"

PS. Mine are.

The 'jam sessions' with adjoining allotment owner, trombonist Brian Chester, will probably be of the Rhubarb Conserve variety - and don't forget to add a little pectin, Ruth, otherwise it'll dribble off your toast
