Bebop Spoken There

Clare Teal: "If you're brought up in a working-class family, you haven't got money for records so everything you get hold of, you treasure, learn to love, and I loved those Ella tapes." - (Radio Times 23-29 January 2021)

The Things They Say!

This is simply "Amazon"

Roly Veitch forwarded me this intriguing, albeit somewhat misleading, link. Bill Evans Plays Banjo.
This slants a whole new light on the opening concert of this year's 10th annual Scarborough Jazz Festival - GARETH WILLIAMS and DAVE GREEN play BILL EVANS and SCOTT La FARO!
Which reminds me that the big weekend by the sea is now only 24 days away. My bucket and spade is already packed - bucket for the beer and spade for the chips.
The tragic death of trumpet player Abram Wilson in June left a massive gap to fill on Saturday afternoon's programme and possibly the Jay Phelps Quartet is the only trumpet-led group that could do it. Jay will pay a musical tribute to Abram that should be both emotional and yet joyous as we remember the good times listening to the late trumpet man.
Lance.
PS: As a special treat the James Birkett Trio will be playing in the bar during the festival.
