Bebop Spoken There

Avishai Cohen (trumpet): "This is my main thing right now: Live in the here and now, take things one day at a time. I'm stopping everything I can, and stripping everything to the bone. I'm spending a lot of time listening to music, playing, going for walks, enjoying my kids." - (DownBeat June 2020).

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)

RIP Stan Nicholson

Sad to report the death, suddenly, of Stan Nicholson. Stan played lead guitar with Rowlands Gill Based group the Silver Dollars who had a minor success with a single - Rainbow - back in 1965. More recently, Stan switched to bass guitar and could be heard with Mick Hill (later Miles Watson) and the Jazz Esquires at the Porthole, North Shields.
In the photo, taken in 2012, Stan is sitting below the mirror.
Sadly missed.
Stanley Nicholson's funeral is on Monday January 27. 11.15am at Newcastle's West Rd. Crematorium.
Lance.
