Bebop Spoken There

Frank Sinatra: "Who is the worst living American? Jake LaMotta. He dumped the fight against Billy Fox, and never told his father, who bet his life savings on Jake. Lower than whale shit." - (John Brady: Frank & Ava In Love and War - Thomas Dunne Books 2015). A 1970 quote from a Pete Hamill interview.

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)

RIP Phil Mason

Sad to hear of the death of Phil Mason, New Orleans style trumpet player, some time last night (June 9).. I recall a gig at the Saville Exchange in North Shields back in 2009 where Phil and his New Orleans All Stars gave an excellent performance. (Review). Also suggest looking out for CD "Swing That Music" one of many albums by the band.
Sadly missed by all in the Trad fraternity and beyond.
Phil Mason was 74.
Obituary.
Lance.
