Bebop Spoken There

Gil Goldstein: "The first three days I was in Florida, I heard Jaco Pastorius play at a club in Fort Lauderdale, and then I heard Pat [Metheny] play in a class on jazz composition. My whole experience of the world changed in those three days." - (DownBeat, March 2020).

(Review by Lance).
I've listed 20 musicians but there may have been more. Such were the comings and goings it was nigh impossible to keep score.
I know I say this just about every other week but, nevertheless, this could have been the best yet and, no doubt I'll say the same in two weeks time!
With such an assortment of talent - age range 15 - 80 - impossible and unfair to single out individual performances suffice to say everyone contributed and the variety was infinite!
Remember it's free and on the first and third Tuesday of each month. Tell your friends but don't tell the fire dept!

I'm sure any vocalist who can 'cut it' will be welcomed!
