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)

Colin, our man in Hong Kong, has added a couple of names to the jam session photo.

Hi Lance, the alto player on the jam session is Charlie Lovell. I recognize the dark hair and the raised shoulder.

OMG Charlie Lovell! The reeds I sold him when I worked in JGW. With Charlie L you got paid in cash with an half an hour of conversation thrown in.
He had some wonderful (I almost said Lovelly) stories to tell from days of yore. What a character - come to think about it they were all "characters" on that photo!

The guitarist on the left of the Porthole picture looks like Eric Gamblin to me.
