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)

CD Review: Durham University Big Band - overDUBB

Durham University Big Band have digitally released an exciting new album - overDUBB.  Those who have heard the band live at the Jazz Coop, Darlington Jazz Club, Sunderland Big Band Festival (as well as at London's prestigious Pizza Express Jazz Club) will know what to expect. If the band is new to you then now's the time to find out what you've been missing.
Cracking soloists, tight section work and tempos that would suit J.K. Simmons to a T - indeed the Whiplash Theme opens up the album which also includes some distinctive vocals from Laura Paul.
Track listing and personnel can be found by following the link below.
Buy/Listen.
Lance.
