Bebop Spoken There

Clare Teal: "If you're brought up in a working-class family, you haven't got money for records so everything you get hold of, you treasure, learn to love, and I loved those Ella tapes." - (Radio Times 23-29 January 2021)

RIP Alice Babs

Sweden's First Jazz Lady Alice Babs passed away yesterday (February 11) aged 90. Babs is probably best remembered in the jazz world for her collaborations with Duke Ellington. In particular the sacred concerts.
In 1958 she was Sweden's first Eurovision Song Contest entrant finishing 4th. Babs also appeared in several Swedish films.
Sadly missed.
Lance.
