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)

Speechless ? Yes - even before the end of the second set we were all enthralled by the mesmerising soundscape unfolding in front of us. A fantastic gig, and probably the best I've see & heard from this veritable Supergroup. Tremendous !

Very nice jazz rap review, Steve - it certainly covered all the eSSentials of a brilliant gig.
The playing and Chris Sharkey's duck-egg coloured guitar also gave me poetic thoughts of Wallace Stevens' 'Man with the Blue Guitar'

They said, 'You have a blue guitar,
You do not play things as they are.'

The man replied, 'Things as they are
Are changed upon the blue guitar.'
