Bebop Spoken There

Charlie Musselwhite: "I used to see these posters in the windows of the [Chicago] blues clubs advertising Elmore James and Muddy Waters which knocked me out. I was making a note of the addresses and at night I'd go back and listen to the blues until 4-5 in the morning." - (Blues Matters! Aug/Sep 2021)

Frank Griffith - Master of the Reeds.

On my recent London jaunt I was impressed with the clarinet (and tenor) playing of Frank Griffith and, after receiving a friendly thank you email from him, I visited his website which is well worth checking out featuring as it does, a superb Body and Soul as well as a track from Tina May's album Divas with the Frank Griffith Big Band. It's the old Peggy Lee/Benny Goodman classic Why Don't You Do Right? - Take it from me they certainly do do it right!
Check it out here. (Photo from Frank Griffith's website.)
