Bebop Spoken There

Charlie Musselwhite: "I used to see these posters in the windows of the [Chicago] blues clubs advertising Elmore James and Muddy Waters which knocked me out. I was making a note of the addresses and at night I'd go back and listen to the blues until 4-5 in the morning." - (Blues Matters! Aug/Sep 2021)

The Things They Say!

Choose your Gig of the Year

Gig of the Year? Tough choice most years. This year I've narrowed it down to two, paradoxically six months apart to the very day.
March 14 - Gregory Porter at Hoochie Coochie. An incredible experience hearing the great man up close in a small venue.
September 14 - Richard Pite's Jazz Repertory Company recreating Jazz At The Philharmonic at London's Cadogan Hall. The 1940s alive and swinging. I was sitting in the gallery which is exactly where the music was aimed at.
At grass roots level, any of the Strictly Smokin' Big Band gigs - particularly the Sunday afternoon sessions at Hoochie.
They are my thoughts let's be having yours!
Lance.
