Bebop Spoken There

Charlie Musselwhite: "I used to see these posters in the windows of the [Chicago] blues clubs advertising Elmore James and Muddy Waters which knocked me out. I was making a note of the addresses and at night I'd go back and listen to the blues until 4-5 in the morning." - (Blues Matters! Aug/Sep 2021)

The Things They Say!

Saturday Night @ The Caff

Audience of reasonable size (not packed out like it could have been, but hey, it was a Saturday night…..)   However, the band gelled and Lindsay was on form. We’d have settled for nothing less!   
The (planned & advertised) Jam Session was something different. Only a few musicians brought their instruments, and after the audience removed themselves to the lower bar area, there was but one keen jammer with trombone in hand.  And, after he’d blown out his Birthday Cake candle, it was time (shortly before midnight) for Joe Fowler to call a few tunes.   The absence of drums could have left a big hole in the proceedings,   but the arrival of James Harrison allowed a piano accompaniment (striding like a maestro!!!) which filled the space very nicely!  Vocals from Lindsay, Joe F and at one point John Pope kept everyone on their toes.
A canny jam, with a sole volunteer making use of the house band, unless some spontaneous singing erupted after I’d left? …………
