Bebop Spoken There

Paul Edis: "One of the regulars at The Gala today called me a 'turncoat' and another a 'deserter' - that's a very northern way of displaying affection in response to the news that I'm leaving the area. 'They're vicious down there mind you'. " - (Twitter January24, 2020)

The Golden Highway - The Grand Union Orchestra

The Grand Union Orchestra is one of those organisations that are totally impossible to categorise - they cover so many genres even during the course of one piece.
The Golden Highway is a brilliant example of this 'multi-tasking' with splash of grand opera intermingled with latin/motown/jazz and funk plus a few more. Click on the link to learn and hear more.
Oh yes then there's a terrific lyric by Colin Sell:

Chapeaux Colin Sell! and thank you Andrea Picton for bringing this to my attention on Facebook.
Lance.
