Bebop Spoken There

Avishai Cohen (trumpet): "This is my main thing right now: Live in the here and now, take things one day at a time. I'm stopping everything I can, and stripping everything to the bone. I'm spending a lot of time listening to music, playing, going for walks, enjoying my kids." - (DownBeat 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)

Music was their Mistress

Described as a ‘speculative drama’ by jazz trumpeter and writer Ian Smith, Blood Count is an imagined meeting of minds between Duke Ellington and Billy Strayhorn in a 1967  recording studio during which they would commit to tape Strayhorn’s Blood Count.
In Radio 4’s repeat of Drama: Blood Count this afternoon at 2:15 Clark Peters plays the part of Ellington and Don Gilet that of Strayhorn.
