Bebop Spoken There

Frank Sinatra: "Who is the worst living American? Jake LaMotta. He dumped the fight against Billy Fox, and never told his father, who bet his life savings on Jake. Lower than whale shit." - (John Brady: Frank & Ava In Love and War - Thomas Dunne Books 2015). A 1970 quote from a Pete Hamill interview.

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)

James Birkett - Bradley Johnston Jazz Guitar Duo
Once in a while a very young musician comes along who clearly has a very special talent. When it happens its a lovely thing to see them progress. Such a case is guitarist Bradley Johnston, a product of The Sage weekend school and now studying for his music degree. This wonderful young artist is paired with his mentor, Blaydon favourite, master guitarist James Birkett, and together they play a complete cross section of jazz guitar history - from Django to Metheny.
