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)

Hear the Mo Scott Song Book at the Lit & Phil

Tomorrow lunchtime, Friday 19, Mo Scott, Empress of the Blues, sings jazz and blues in the company of long-time musical associate Neil Harland (bass) and pianist Paul Edis. In the intimate confines of the Loftus Room at the Lit & Phil this will be a rare opportunity to hear Scott up close and personal. No one sings the blues quite like Mo – you believe it when she tells you how it is. Bassist Neil Harland is her ideal accompanist; years of gigs makes theirs an instinctive partnership, talking, walking bass lines conversing with Scott. Paul Edis has recently established a working relationship with the vocalist – playing as a duo – and this lunchtime meeting is likely to dip into the jazz repertoire as well as Scott’s natural oeuvre of the blues. The Lit & Phil’s monthly concert series continues to attract a large following. To be sure of a seat, arrive in good time for the one o’clock start. Pay on the door (£4.00.), get yourself a tea or coffee, or something a little stronger, and enjoy the one hour set of classic jazz and blues from the Empress of the Blues – Mo Scott.
