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)

Super Saturday - well mainly...


(Review by Lance)
What a day this has been what a rare mood I'm in why it's almost like being in Hoboken (or Trent Bridge - but not Leicester!)
The day began well with the Ashes victory and continued for me by watching last night's Sinatra shows on BBC4. Part 1 of the four part series All or Nothing at All gave us an atmospheric look at Old Blue Eyes' early days with tantalisingly brief song snatches. Look forward to Part 2.
The John Wilson/Seth MacFarlane/Jamie Parker/Claire Martin  Prom package at the Albert Hall was a delight with all singers on form although, like so many before them, not within an inch of the original!
For me, the highlight was Claire Martin singing The Folks Who Live on the Hill. Peggy Lee made this her own but Claire came closer than anyone in capturing the poignant magic of that Jerome Kern classic. Just to hear so many great songs was fantastic. No High Hopes, Strangers in the Night, My Way or Something Stupid, just gassers from the pens of the greats
Great start to the football season by Sunderland with them scoring two goals - they don't do that very often. Shame Leicester City scored four.
