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)

R.I.P. Al Harewood.

Drum legend Al Harewood passed away on March 13 aged 90. A Blue Note houseman back in in the 1950s and '60s Harewood played on many sessions with Dexter Gordon, Stanley Turrentine, J.J. Johnson, Horace Parlan, Stan Getz and a host of others.
His passing is not without a north east connection as fellow drummer David Carnegie, former north east resident, studied with Al Harewood and wrote a tune paying tribute to Al during his time as leader of Extreme Measures.
Sadly missed.
Obituary.
Lance.

Sad - met him while making a feature on Smalls for BBC World Service in 2000 or thereabouts. Good player, nice man.

Thanks Lance. He was one of my first drum teachers. I used to go for lessons at a house he had in Barbados. His parents were Barbadian I believe. He was a kind and patient man.
