Bebop Spoken There

Clare Teal: "If you're brought up in a working-class family, you haven't got money for records so everything you get hold of, you treasure, learn to love, and I loved those Ella tapes." - (Radio Times 23-29 January 2021)

The Things They Say!

RIP Keith Emerson


I must confess, I didn't know much about Keith Emerson until I heard him playing Honky Tonk Train Blues. I bought the 45rpm and found the B-side  Barrel House Shakedown even better.
Listen to him with Oscar Peterson doing that same Honky Tonk Train number.  Alright, OK, So Maybe, Oscar wins but it's a photo finish!
So sad to lose such a great musician in such circumstances.
The world will remember you, Keith, from Emerson, Lake and Palmer but I'll remember you for reviving an old Meade Lux Lewis tune. Maybe Meade would have dug it too...
RIP, sadly missed.
Obituary.
Lance.
