Bebop Spoken There

Gretchen Parlato: "There's always an essence of the original [tune] that should be protected. I try to find that first - it's the thing that draws me to the material" - (DownBeat, March 2021)

RIP Nat Peck

Trombonist Nat Peck whose playing career ranged from Glenn Miller to the Clarke-Boland Big Band via Dizzy Gillespie has died aged 90. Peter Bevan kindly brought to my attention this Daily Telegraph obituary.
The last surviving member of Miller's AEF band, Nat Peck died on October 24.
May he rest in peace.
Lance.
