Bebop Spoken There

Gretchen Parlato: "There's always an essence of the original [tune] that should be protected. I try to find that first - it's the thing that draws me to the material" - (DownBeat, March 2021)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MARK GIBSON & LEE GIBSON

Wednesday, April 17, 2013

Preview Quercus - The Sage, April 27.

If, like me, you missed Iain Ballamy at GIJF there is, thankfully, a second chance to catch him as part of Quercus a jazz/folk trio. As well as Ballamy on saxes the trio comprises June Tabor on voice and Huw Warren on piano. The music is a strangely compelling and evocative mix of jazz and folk with an almost medieval feel to it.
Check out Near But Far Away. Also Lassie Lie Near Me.
Both tracks are from their recently released CD.
