Bebop Spoken There

Avishai Cohen (trumpet): "This is my main thing right now: Live in the here and now, take things one day at a time. I'm stopping everything I can, and stripping everything to the bone. I'm spending a lot of time listening to music, playing, going for walks, enjoying my kids." - (DownBeat June 2020).

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)

Legendary Chicago Tenor Man Dies

Von Freeman died on Saturday August 11 - he was 88. It might be said that Freeman was the player everybody had heard of but, outside of Chicago, had never heard!
Listen to this example of his minimalist approach to Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered
From the Chicago Tribune obituary;
“They said I played out of tune, played a lot of wrong notes, a lot of weird ideas,” Freeman told the Tribune, in 1992.
“But it didn't matter, because I didn't have to worry about the money – I wasn't making [hardly] any. I didn't have to worry about fame – I didn't have any.
“I was free.”
RIP.
Lance.
