Bebop Spoken There

Frank Sinatra: "Who is the worst living American? Jake LaMotta. He dumped the fight against Billy Fox, and never told his father, who bet his life savings on Jake. Lower than whale shit." - (John Brady: Frank & Ava In Love and War - Thomas Dunne Books 2015). A 1970 quote from a Pete Hamill interview.

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)

"THERE  ARE FEW GREAT MOVIES ON JAZZ - BUT MANY MOVIES MADE GREAT BY JAZZ" 
Music  historian Chris Phipps traces the extraordinary trip  taken by jazz on the big and small screen .  Jazz  has evolved from  a patronising    novelty  to becoming  a major force of big screen  creativity with the advent of  cinematic post war social reality and rock n roll.. Chris will be paying tribute to Quincy Jones ,Lalo Schifrin, MJQ ,Miles Davis,  and crossing over into jazz/funk/electronic territory too. Whether it's "THE WILD ONE" , "THE MAN WITH THE GOLDEN ARM"  ,"BULLITT" or our own "GET CARTER", you’ll be in for some big car chases!
