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).

Not smiling re Smulyan tour.

Gary Smulyan - currently the world's number one baritone player - is touring with the Nigel Price Trio. Sadly the gigs don't seem to pass north of Peterborough.
Maybe next year.

PS: Was the gig offered further north?

Hi Lance.
I organised the tour.
I did my best to get more of a national spread but it was at relatively short notice and the clubs in Yorkshire book WAY ahead.
If I'd have managed to land something there then we could have used that as a springboard to head up to your neck of the woods.
Sorry it couldn't work this time round but hopefully next time something like this comes up we'll make it work.
All the best.
