Bebop Spoken There

Brian Dee: "I feel my generation had one advantage over today's players in that we were not musically educated in colleges, so we all sounded different. I could tell who it was just by the sound." - (Jazz Rag, Summer 2020).

Tonight! Lonnie Liston Smith @ Hoochie June 26

Tonight (June 26) sees another coup for Hoochie Coochie in the form of legendary Richmond, Virginia, born pianist and singer Lonnie Liston Smith.
Smith, whose CV includes stints with Art Blakey, Rahsaan Roland Kirk and Miles Davis before forming his Cosmic Express and setting the bench mark for soul/funk bands to aim at, hits the stage at 9pm. Band line up  is listed as follows:
Lonnie Liston Smith - vocals and keys; Tabitha Pearson - vocals; Samir Moulay - guitar; Scott Ambush - bass; Lee Pearson - drums.
All for £10!
How does Warren do it? I don't know, let's just be thankful that he does!
Lance.
