Bebop Spoken There

Gil Goldstein: "The first three days I was in Florida, I heard Jaco Pastorius play at a club in Fort Lauderdale, and then I heard Pat [Metheny] play in a class on jazz composition. My whole experience of the world changed in those three days." - (DownBeat, March 2020).

RIP Jack Bruce

Jack Bruce, composer, bass guitarist, vocalist, died today  (October 25) age 71. Perhaps best known as part of super-group Cream, Bruce was not without his jazz leanings. He always claimed that he was a jazz man at heart and he certainly played and recorded with many jazz and blues legends starting north of the border with Jim McHarg's Scotsville Jazz Band. Alexis Korner's Blues Incorporated, John Mayall's Blues Breakers and Tony Williams' Lifetime were just some of the many musicians he was associated with.
A bass guitar icon, the heavenly rhythm section will be rockin' tonight.
Rest In Peace.
Obituary.
Lance.

Yes,another great musician passes on. He was certainly the main man who got me into Bass all those decades ago

Sad news, but his musical legacy lives on. Saw him in 2012 (Tyne Theatre) - what energy he had even then !!
