Bebop Spoken There

Lou Donaldson: "(On Art Blakey) Everything changed. Especially when the women came in, sat down in the front row, and raised their skirts above their knees. Then the drums got louder, the tempos got faster, and every tune was a drum solo" - (JazzTimes, November 2019.)

Jazz Record Requests/Jamie Cullum

Alyn Shipton's Jazz Record Requests remembers Stan Tracey - Today (Jan 4) 5 pm. Radio 3.

Also, at 10:30 am today on Radio 4, Jamie Cullum examines the question, something along the lines of - is the piano's popularity waning? Not by any means a jazz programme.

I missed Jamie's programme, but in jazz, certainly, pianism is in the ascendent - one only has to listen to the first 30 minutes of today's Jazz Line Up! *

Then stay for the rest as well - a set from Carl Bley, Steve Swallow and Andy Sheppard from last years LJF.

Mmmmmmmmmmm, nice!
