Bebop Spoken There

Charlie Musselwhite: "I used to see these posters in the windows of the [Chicago] blues clubs advertising Elmore James and Muddy Waters which knocked me out. I was making a note of the addresses and at night I'd go back and listen to the blues until 4-5 in the morning." - (Blues Matters! Aug/Sep 2021)

Lauren Kinsella, Mark Sanders & Will Edmondes @ King’s Hall. November 22

Lauren Kinsella (vocals), Mark Sanders (drums) & Will Edmondes (vocals & electronics)
(Review by Russell.)
Small world. At the Sage last night two drummers - one very good British drummer schooled at Newcastle College (Seb Rochford), one legendary drummer (Jack DeJohnette), then today across the Tyne in King’s Hall at Newcastle University the ubiquitous free jazz drummer Mark Sanders turns up. 
A very small world. At the Sage last night working with Seb Rochford in Polar Bear, one Mark Lockheart. Today in King’s Hall vocalist Lauren Kinsella, a collaborator with none other than M.Lockheart. Another musical associate, Laura Jurd, played a gig recently at the Cluny and a CD review of  the trumpeter’s new CD was reviewed recently in the pages of Bebop Spoken Here. Kinsella, born in Ireland, is currently studying for a Masters at the Royal Academy of Music. Active on the London jazz and improve scene, the Irishwoman explores the voice’s improvisatory possibilities focusing on non-syllabic language. Having previously shared a stage with Sanders there was empathy between the two. Newcastle University academic and music practitioner Will Edmondes introduced elements of hip hop and humour to the one hour set. Kinsella will be returning to Newcastle University next year to host an improvisation workshop.
