Bebop Spoken There

Avishai Cohen (trumpet): "This is my main thing right now: Live in the here and now, take things one day at a time. I'm stopping everything I can, and stripping everything to the bone. I'm spending a lot of time listening to music, playing, going for walks, enjoying my kids." - (DownBeat June 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)

As we all know there are no live gigs taking place in the immediate future. However, any links to jazz streaming that are deemed suitable - i.e. with a professional approach - will be considered for posting.

R.I.P. Frankie Dunlop.


Belated information has come through that drummer Frankie Dunlop died last month (July) aged 85. Best remembered as a member of the definitive Thelonious Monk Quartet I personally remember him from a Lionel Hampton concert at Newcastle City Hall (see photo) back in 1983 - he retired shortly after, his name a legend in jazz drumology.
