Bebop Spoken There

Charlie Musselwhite: "I used to see these posters in the windows of the [Chicago] blues clubs advertising Elmore James and Muddy Waters which knocked me out. I was making a note of the addresses and at night I'd go back and listen to the blues until 4-5 in the morning." - (Blues Matters! Aug/Sep 2021)

The Things They Say!

RIP Andy Hamilton

The sad news has reached me of the death of Jamaican born, Birmingham based saxophonist Andy Hamilton MBE.
An enigmatic figure who wasn't heard nationally as frequently as he deserved, I never had the pleasure of hearing him live although I do cherish the two CDs which feature him alongside, on various tracks, Jean Touissant, David Murray, Orphy Robinson, Jason Rebello - even Mick Hucknell - among others that show him to be easily holding his own next to those other jazz household names.
He continued his educational work up until recently.
Andy Hamilton left us on June 3.
He was 94.
Sadly missed.
Lance.
