Bebop Spoken There

Dave Puddy: "Eventually we paid our entrance money [to Eel Pie Island] and fought our way to one of the many bars where we could buy our Newcastle Brown and retire to the back of the heaving dancefloor. There must have been lights somewhere, but my memory remains of being in some dark cavernous wonderland." - (Just Jazz July 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)

The Good Die Young. RIP Austin Peralta

It's always sad when someone dies. When that someone is an outstanding jazz pianist it is even sadder. However, the saddest thing of all is that Austin Peralta was only 22 when he passed on November 22.
An outstanding prodigy who played the Tokyo Jazz Festival at the tender age of 15 Peralta looked to becoming a jazz legend alongside such as Chick Corea, Herbie Hancock and Brad Mehldau. Sadly that will no longer come to pass - or has it? Judge for yourself.

This shocking news reminds me so much of another young, gifted, original pianist who died tragically too soon - Richard Twardzik.

The jazz world is littered with those who died too young. From Bix to Abram Wilson and now Austin Peralta.
