Bebop Spoken There

Dave Holland: "Back then, one of my first gigs was with Wally Fawkes and Johnny Parker at the Crown and Anchor in Islington, playing music that went back to the days of King Oliver. And I've always enjoyed the joyousness of that music, and the sound of everybody fitting together beautifully, improvising together." - Jazzwise, August 2021.
