Bebop Spoken There

Brian Dee: "I feel my generation had one advantage over today's players in that we were not musically educated in colleges, so we all sounded different. I could tell who it was just by the sound." - (Jazz Rag, Summer 2020).

Be Early For the Early Birds

(Preview by Russell)
This Friday, August 7, if you’re thinking about going to the Jazz Café to hear the Paul Edis Trio (what’s to think about?) make an extra special effort and arrive at seven thirty. The best jazz trio in town will begin the first of two sets at the usual time (nine o’clock) but before then there is the added bonus of a public performance by members of pianist Paul Edis’ Early Bird student band.


The Early Bird Band comprises five or six (maybe more) young musicians making their way in the world of jazz. Tutored by Edis, the students have been working on a number of tunes, and, importantly, giving a half hour performance at the Lit & Phil on Saturday mornings – hence the ‘Early Bird’ tag! Think ‘Yardbird’ too; the spirit of Parker with an aspiration to fly high. This Jazz Café event is a ‘live’ gig. These young musicians have a desire to succeed, they’ll show no fear. Get along and show your support. 7:30pm sharp. 
Russell.
