Bebop Spoken There

Gil Goldstein: "The first three days I was in Florida, I heard Jaco Pastorius play at a club in Fort Lauderdale, and then I heard Pat [Metheny] play in a class on jazz composition. My whole experience of the world changed in those three days." - (DownBeat, March 2020).

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.
