Bebop Spoken There

Gretchen Parlato: "There's always an essence of the original [tune] that should be protected. I try to find that first - it's the thing that draws me to the material" - (DownBeat, March 2021)

Memorabilia

Thanks to Dr. Keith Armstrong for this collection of memories but, with the exception of Ellington and Ornette,, what years were they from?

The Coleman Hawkins was 1967 - I was there in the middle of the front row, aged 14! Still got my ticket somewhere, too.

By a process of elimination the Armstrong concert would be the first tour in 1956. The second tour was Feb.- March 1959 and the third April - May 1962. There is no date on my fist tour programme but the price is about right as I remember paying £1 5s for a ticket at the City Hall.
