Bebop Spoken There

Ethan Iverson: "Oscar Peterson famously said that Bud [Powell] played just too many wrong notes. He was really critical of Bud as a player, which I think is not right." - (DownBeat March 2021)

Alan Glen Trio @ The Jazz Café. March 29 (second set)

The interval afforded bassist Neil Harland the opportunity to rearrange the furniture. Alan Glen struggled to hear properly during the first set, the sloping ceiling and limited floor space making for a cheek by jowl set-up. Harland repositioned his bass cabinet to the side windows and it appeared to do the trick. Had LL hung around, his second set review would have been no different to the first – top class piano playing supported by two of the best in the business (Harland and drummer Paul Wight). The material every bit as good as the first set, tunes included Four, All Blues, Autumn Leaves and What is This Thing Called Love?
