Bebop Spoken There

Anat Cohen: "With the tenor, it's so iconic with jazz. With the clarinet, I can improvise, but it doesn't have to be called jazz." - (DownBeat July 2019)

RIP Joe Evans

Saxophonist Joe Evans who died on January 17 aged 97 may never have been a jazz household name despite working from the '40s to the '60s with the likes of Lionel Hampton, Dizzy Gillespie, Cab Calloway and many other swing and bebop legends. This is understandable as he left music in 1965.
He did, however, recount that era to great effect in his 2008 autobiography Follow Your Heart (University of Illinois Press) written in conjunction with Christopher Brooks.
It is well worth chasing down.
Rest In Peace.
Obituary.
Lance.
