Bebop Spoken There

Peter Woodford: "I noticed when I went to hear some jazz in a little pub on the outskirts of London the people were really listening. I'm used to guys in bars only interested in making out with their girl friends. Here the idea seems to be to take a girl, enjoy the music, and make out later." - (Crescendo September 1972).
