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 Allen Toussaint.


R'n'B pianist, composer, producer Allen Toussaint passed away today aged 77. His New Orleans roots showed in his playing and in his writing. I never actually heard him live although I know he blew Sage Gateshead apart a few years back. Missed by many.
Love to hear from anyone who was at that Sage gig.
Lance.
