Bebop Spoken There

Dave Puddy: "Eventually we paid our entrance money [to Eel Pie Island] and fought our way to one of the many bars where we could buy our Newcastle Brown and retire to the back of the heaving dancefloor. There must have been lights somewhere, but my memory remains of being in some dark cavernous wonderland." - (Just Jazz July 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)

You Win Some - You Lose Some!

Browsing in one of the local charity shops I came across a book by Fay Weldon The Leader of the Band. A tale about a woman who leaves her husband to go off to France with a trad band. It's quite funny. However, whilst waiting to be served in the shop I noted the guy in front buying an LP - Thelonious Monk at the Black Hawk on Riverside.
"20p" said the assistant. My jaw dropped and I scurried back to browse the LPs but decided I didn't want Max Bygraves, Jim Reeves or Mantovani. At 50p Fay Weldon was now less of a bargain! The Monk has Joe Gordon on trumpet and Harold Land and Charlie Rouse on tenors - wow!
Why did I choose today to give the LPs a miss?
Lance.
PS: At least it's on Spotify so I can hear what I missed - and it is a cracking album...
