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)

The Collective @ Hoochie Coochie. April 10.

Tim Bloomer (gtr); Dominic Snaith (pno); Martyn Dixon (bs); Paul Crown (dms) + Elliott Todd (tpt/flug).
The young guns were on target once again with their brand of jazz rock, funk, fusion call it what you will. The influences were many ranging from heavy metal to Herbie Hancock. This month's guest, Elliott Todd, first heard at a Jazz Café Jam, excelled on trumpet and flugel at times bringing to mind those days of yore when Miles dipped his toes into the muddied waters of rock and roll.
Keep an eye out for Elliott at a gig near you.
Tim, needless to say, led by example laying down some strong lines and soloing with much aplomb. Dominic hit the Hammond button and laid down the kind of groove you'd only expect to get from a fully grown B3.
On bass guitar, Martyn gave solid support and Paul Crown is surely one of the most underrated drummers around.
Maybe just another day at the office but, nonetheless, an enjoyable one.
Lance.
PS: Good to see Chris Jelly digging the sounds..
