Bebop Spoken There

Whitney Shay: 'A few years back, I did a gig at an Asian grocery store next to the frozen food section. It was the opening of their bakery. It was a jazz gig and I sang jazz standards next to the frozen fish!'' - (Blues Matters! June/July 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)

The Pannonica Three, Summertime in Winter and Etta All Through the Night

(Preview by Russell)
On Friday night (January16th) as you head out to your gig of choice (you are going out aren’t you?) you’ll need to remember to set your recording device(s) of choice. BBC 4 (television) demands your attention for fully four and a half hours. Sounds of the Sixties (7:30pm) dips into the ‘60s beat boom, then at eight, Gershwin’s Summertime: the Song That Conquered the World is about that song. At nine pianist Neil Brand looks at Sound of Song, an exploration of the writing, recording and performing of hit songs. The Irving Berlin classic Cheek to Cheek is examined in some detail. An hour later archive material of a motley crew of performers interpreting Porter, Berlin, Mercer and Arlen could be an interesting experience! Hang in there because at 11:00pm Blues at the BBC features Son House, BB King and others.
Meanwhile, over on BBC Radio 4 Extra there is not one, not two but three opportunities to hear The Jazz Baroness. The legendary story of Pannonica (a good egg patron of jazz) is told by Hannah Rothschild. So, we’ll get the insider’s view of a great aunt. Tune in at 6:30am, again at 1:30pm and again at 8:30pm!
Before all of that there is Chris Barber. Clare Teal (9:00pm, Sunday 11, Radio 2) talks to the man himself. Tuesday (10.00.pm, Radio 2) Jools Holland profiles the man in a second and concluding programme – Chris Barber: Leader of the Band. Earlier, at seven, Jamie Cullum chats to Zoe Rahman. Up all night? BBC 6 Music (2:00am Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday) surveys the career of a great blues voice – Blues to the Bone: the Life of Etta James. A final cut – Front Row (Radio 4, 7:15pm, Wednesday), reviews Whiplash. See the film at a good cinema near you from Friday.
