Bebop Spoken There

Belá Fleck: "...he [Chick Corea] brought out the best in musicians. Not only would you get to play with him, but you'd get to play with the best version of yourself." - (DownBeat April 2021).

Taylor made for the Vermont - Oct. 23

 A flying visit to the Vermont Hotel before heading along to the Jazz Café to catch Gerry Richardson. The advertised attraction – Andrea Pattison and Stu Collingwood – received a better offer: a spot on a television show being recorded in London. Understandably the duo went south.
The late dep of Hannah Taylor and Alix Shepherd did nothing to lessen the quality in the Redwood Bar, far from it. Vocalist Taylor sat on a high stool, pianist Shepherd alongside. The Vermont gig is a low key affair affording musicians the opportunity to run through a selection of tunes they want to play, perhaps haven’t played in a while. Taylor looked the part dressed in black, high heels and pearls. The waist-coated Shepherd’s accompaniment ever-professional. Route 66 cabaret-style, Gas book and Stevie Wonder. A half hour or so   of classy sounds. On to the Caff for some goings on Back at the Chicken Shack.

Russell.
