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)

Lindsay Hannon Plus - Live @ The Bridge Hotel. October 20

A live recording session at the Bridge by Lindsay Hannon Plus was something not to be missed. Having heard Lindsay earlier at Hoochie I knew the girl was in good voice and well worth dragging my tired body the short distance to The Bridge Hotel.
By the time I arrived there was already a goodly throng awaiting with bated breath for the recording to begin.
Joni Mitchell's The Hissing of the Summer Lawns, The Doors' The Spy, Joni's An Old Fashioned Hat, The End of a Love Affair, Why Try to Change me Now? and So Long Big Time were just some of the tracks laid down by these four superb musicians - yes drummers and singers are musicians too.
This is a well coordinated band led by a top singer. Lindsay doesn't play safe but takes chances that always seem to come off. Likewise Harrison, Pope and Chapman - a rhythm section to die for.
After the recording session a jam session was afoot but by this time I was flagging so I reluctantly left to be delivered home intact by the number 27.
Truly a velvet evening.
Lance
