Bebop Spoken There

Avishai Cohen (trumpet): "This is my main thing right now: Live in the here and now, take things one day at a time. I'm stopping everything I can, and stripping everything to the bone. I'm spending a lot of time listening to music, playing, going for walks, enjoying my kids." - (DownBeat June 2020).

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)

The Things They Say!

Today

As we all know there are no live gigs taking place in the immediate future. However, any links to jazz streaming that are deemed suitable - i.e. with a professional approach - will be considered for posting.

New Band in the North East.

Just finished listening to a demo record by a new band The North East Four (NE4). Four good men and true - Paul Gowland (tenor sax); Ray Truscott (6 string electric bass); Alan Law (piano); Paul Wight (drums).
A modern quartet that doesn't stray  too far from the contemporary mainstream. A couple of originals by Truscott  and a piece entitled Savoy Cabbage which is based on the Eddie Daniels/Gary Burton arrangement of Stomping at the Savoy are what's on the demo and it shows them off to advantage - well it would wouldn't it!
The Star, The Forum, Travellers Rest,.Splinter, Lit and Phil are some of the clubs/venues this band would easily slot into.
Interested parties email Ray Truscott - raytruscott@gmail.com.
Lance.
