Bebop Spoken There

Dave Puddy: "Eventually we paid our entrance money [to Eel Pie Island] and fought our way to one of the many bars where we could buy our Newcastle Brown and retire to the back of the heaving dancefloor. There must have been lights somewhere, but my memory remains of being in some dark cavernous wonderland." - (Just Jazz July 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)

Murder Trial Verdict

Well the sad case is over now and Mark Arthur found guilty of the murder of Heather Arthur. No need to repeat the details as I'm sure there will be plenty media coverage including tomorrow night on BBC Look North after sentencing takes place.
May Heather now be allowed to Rest In Peace
Lance.

Justice has prevailed, and will allow those of us who knew Heather to have closure and move forward in this knowledge. Rest peacefully my friend, I think of you each time I sing Autumn Leaves...this one is always for you... with love xx

Yes Kath, and I fondly remember Heather singing 'Round Midnight' on the same occasion at the Star pub. God bless her children. I'm so glad I knew Heather.

Hi Lance good to see you on the telly !
Wish me luck, just bought a tenor sax for
my eightieth birthday. Still enjoying things
at the Black Horse.
Best wishes

Lance said...

Well Laurie it wasn't exactly how I wanted to make my début on telly - far from it. One of the saddest moments I've ever experienced.
On a brighter note - Good to hear you''re now a musician as well as a drummer!
