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)

R.I.P. Joe Mudele

I've just learned via Londonjazznews of the death of bassist Joe Mudele aged 93. One of the early British bebop bass players - he spelt his name Muddel back then - a founder member of the Club XI and the Dankworth 7 he also played in the big bands of Ambrose, Jack Nathan, Paul Adam, Kenny Baker's Dozen and small groups led by Norman Burns and Tommy Whittle.
I recall Eric Delaney once saying to me that his ambition was to outlive Joe Mudele! Well Eric didn't manage it and now they're both up in that heavenly rhythm section.
Joe Mudele died on March 7.
Sadly missed.
Lance
PS:  Anyone know why and when he changed his name from Muddel to Mudele?
