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 Stuart McKie.


The sad news has broken that guitarist and Jazz Co-op member Stuart McKie died yesterday June 25.
Stuart, pictured here in March earlier this year,  was a regular at the Sunday afternoon jam sessions at the Salsa Café as well as at the Co-op's workshops.
His commitment and enthusiasm as well as his very good sense of humour will be sadly missed.
Our sympathies go out to his wife Pam, family and friends.
Rest in Peace.
Lance.
