Bebop Spoken There

Brian Dee: "I feel my generation had one advantage over today's players in that we were not musically educated in colleges, so we all sounded different. I could tell who it was just by the sound." - (Jazz Rag, Summer 2020).

Jazz Café News

The news that the refurbished Jazz Café will open on Dec.7 is indeed good news although, of course, it will be nothing like the old and much loved one that sank with the death of Keith Crombie - no place ever could.
However, let's not wallow in sentimentality for what has gone but welcome this new venture and wish it every success.
The following program has been arranged with updates to be announced as they transpire.
Sat 7 Dec  8.15pm: Alan Law solo piano. 10.15pm: Slowlight Quartet
Fri 13 Dec 10.00pm Paul Edis Trio.

Meanwhile, the quest for funding goes on for Abi Lewis' documentary; The Jazzman. Dedicated to the late Keith Crombie, ex Grupenführer of the original Jazz Café, this is a jazz documentary that has to be brought to fruition. A portrait of a man - a true individual - who didn't suffer fools (gladly or otherwise), who tilted at windmills whether they be jazz ones or local government ones and was never afraid to pass judgement. Support this appeal - the  goal is within sight but a few more pledges are needed so please, if you love jazz or ever visited the original "Caff", dig down and contribute via the Kickstarter campaign.
Lance.
