Bebop Spoken There

Anat Cohen: "With the tenor, it's so iconic with jazz. With the clarinet, I can improvise, but it doesn't have to be called jazz." - (DownBeat July 2019)

Debra Milne Ensemble @ Hexham Jazz Club, Exchange Café, Queens Hall, Feb, 28, 2013.

Debra delivered two great sets with her ensemble of Dave Parker (double bass), Rob Bates (drums), and the amazing Steve Glendinning (guitar). The programme was full of variety and delighted the appreciative and attentive audience. 
There were the be-bop tonal tongue-twisters that Debra sings beautifully and apparently effortlessly (Jordu was cracking). There were uplifting numbers that steamed along - full of joy – like No More Blues. There were the groove based delights of Temptation and Equinox, and then there were the real gems: the Steve Glendinning and Debra Milne originals. Show me the Man is a tender masterpiece of guitar and voice; Don’t Come 'Round Here Anymore and Stay can go straight into the Milne/Glendinning Real Book whenever that comes out. They ended with a warm and engaging musical tribute to the Jazz Café, celebrating the late Keith Crombie and the Toon’s brotherhood of jazz.
