Bebop Spoken There

Brian Harvey: "The exciting day arrived and we [as under age school boys] snuck into the [pub's] rehearsal room, sat awkwardly to attention on hard chairs in a row facing the band and heard our first - very loud - live jazz. What an occasion that was - we even drank beer because we understood that's what jazz people did and that's what the band were drinking." - (Just Jazz June 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)

Today

As we all know there are no live gigs taking place in the immediate future. However, any links to jazz streaming that are deemed suitable - i.e. with a professional approach - will be considered for posting.

RIP Butch Warren

The death has been announced of Butch Warren one of the top American double bassists of the 1950s. Warren played on many of the Blue Note classics from that period including Dexter Gordon's Go and Herbie Hancock's Takin' Off which included the classic Watermelon Man..
As house bass player for Blue Note he also recorded with Donald Byrd, Hank Mobley, Joe Henderson, Grant Green, Sonny Clark, Stanley Turrentine - in fact just about anybody who was anybody on the label. Sadly illness saw Warren fade from the scene and he played only sporadically in recent years.
Edward "Butch" Warren died on October 5 aged 74.
Rest In Peace.
Obituary.
