Bebop Spoken There

Melanie Charles: "If I don't have a gig I'll try to get in bed by midnight. But if I do, I might end up having a jam session after. That happened a few weeks ago, and I didn't get to bed until 7 a.m.." - (The New York Times Aug. 10, 2018)

Jazz Mastermind

Switched on TV - they were showing a re-run of Mastermind. I was just about to change channels when I heard the 'J' word. Yes, someone intended to answer questions on Jazz. Not only that, but the guy in the hot seat was non other than Ron Simpson of Big Bear Music, the Birmingham Jazz and Blues Festival and the Jazz Rag magazine.
Ron scored an impressive 14 points on his specialist subject only 1 point behind a girl answering questions on Buffy the Vampire Slayer. He only slipped up on Slim Gaillard and Flat Foot Floogie.
It was a tight skirmish in the General Knowledge Round with Ron ending up 3rd on 23 pts, "Buffy" on 24 and the eventual winner on 25.
Well done Ron.
Lance.
