Bebop Spoken There

Jasper Høiby: "These days everybody thinks they know something about everything, and there are so many opinions being aired all over the place that aren't fully formed because there are so many platforms to say anything you want to when you feel like it." - (Jazzwise June 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)

Erroll Garner - Concert by the Sea


I haven't received a review copy of The Complete Erroll Garner Concert by the Sea recently released by Columbia/Sony/Legacy as a 3 CD package. I won't lose sleep, my 1955 LP has served me well over the years and, despite repeated playings and the odd drink spilled over it, it remains one of those iconic recordings that will forever, like the definitive recordings of Oscar, Art, Fats, Teddy, Earl and Bud, remain the benchmark for aspiring pianists with chops to aim at and one I'll play whenever I'm up, or whenever I'm down, or maybe just in between!
Even Oscar never played Where or When like this!
It's simply the business!
Lance.
