Bebop Spoken There

Frank Sinatra: "Who is the worst living American? Jake LaMotta. He dumped the fight against Billy Fox, and never told his father, who bet his life savings on Jake. Lower than whale shit." - (John Brady: Frank & Ava In Love and War - Thomas Dunne Books 2015). A 1970 quote from a Pete Hamill interview.

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)

Slowlight Quartet @ Hexham Jazz Club June 13.

How do they do it? How can you make complex, edgy, demanding music instantly engaging? Not only that, but music that is highly expressive and beautiful too?
Well, the Slowlight Quartet may comprise of four highly accomplished musicians; Tom Quilliam sax, Paul Loraine keys, Ian ‘Dodge’ Paterson bass and Jonathan Marriott drums, each with exceptional intonation, making beautiful sounds, but the whole is bigger than the parts. So it’s not a matter of just a locked in- tight as owt – rhythm section with a jaw droppingly wonderful saxophonist, but a band enmeshed in the communal groove. The Slowlight Quartet share a musical brain. Look them up on www.theslowlightquartet.co.uk and get yourself to a gig.
