Bebop Spoken There

Dave Puddy: "Eventually we paid our entrance money [to Eel Pie Island] and fought our way to one of the many bars where we could buy our Newcastle Brown and retire to the back of the heaving dancefloor. There must have been lights somewhere, but my memory remains of being in some dark cavernous wonderland." - (Just Jazz 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)

Buskers in Barcelona


Looking out of a hotel window in Barcelona at the old cathedral, the square below was almost empty. Returning to the window ten minutes later these three musicians had appeared with an upright piano (despite the fact there was no vehicle access to the square). They (Cadena Banda) gave an extended performance of well played dixieland jazz tunes that was appreciated by passers-by. They even included one of their own compositions Back Home in Barcelona which was so authentically in the style it could almost have been written 90 years ago! Not a bad location for busking.
