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)

Blue Notes in Bristol


Down at Bristol on holiday. A friend who is a member of Bristol Jazz Society took me to a gig held in the Crypt of St Mary's Church
Excellent band. The Blue Notes reminded me very much of the Alex Welsh Band. Talking to Ron Brown their trombone player he mentioned that he had deputized for Roy Williams with the Welsh band in the old days. What a super job he did of my request Tangerine - a favorite of Roy's. Reed man Hugh Roberts got a lovely tone on his Chinese Tenor Sax. Young singer Hannah Wedlock made a good job of some Cleo Lane numbers and several blues. Hannah is the daughter of the late West Country comedian Fred Wedlock.
If ever you're in the Bristol area check out Hannah Wedlock and The Blue Notes.
