Bebop Spoken There

John McLaughlin: "I had just recently hooked up with Billy Cobham on the Jack Johnson album with Miles. And I loved the way Billy played. We got really tight after that. So he was the first guy I called [when I formed Mahavishnu Orchestra)." - (JazzTimes July/August 2021)

RIP Graeme Bell


Colin Aitchison has drew to my attention the sad news that Australian pianist and bandleader Graeme Bell has died following a stroke after undergoing routine surgery in a Sydney hospital..

Bell made a big impact in England back in the early fifties when he toured and recorded with one of Humph's early bands cutting several sides with Lyttleton and with his own band for Parlophone.
On an earlier trip to Europe, in 1948, the band recorded in Prague and Paris as well as in London for Carlo Krahmer's Esquire label.
Graeme Bell was 97.
Lance.
