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)

As we all know there are no live gigs taking place in the immediate future. However, any links to jazz streaming that are deemed suitable - i.e. with a professional approach - will be considered for posting.

They Said Goodbye to Brookmeyer.

There is a wonderful report of the memorial service held at St Peter's Church Manhattan on Doug Ramsay's famed blog Rifftides.
The report is by David Sherr who collates perfectly what must have been a moving experience for those remembering the great valve trombonist/pianist/composer/arranger. Bob Brookmeyer died Dec.15 last year aged 81.
Lance.
PS: I remember hearing Brookmeyer with Giuffre at Newcastle City Hall. The latter was riding high with his recording of The Train and the River from Jazz on a Summer's Day but this version was even better!
