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)

Tomorrow night (April 28) @ Hoochie Coochie - The Gerry Richardson Soul Quartet

'The Gerry Richardson Quartet is a dynamic Hammond organ based band exploring the jazz organ genre to the max!  Soul, Gospel, Funk, Swing and Samba are all part of the mix. Add to that some kicking original tunes, many written as tributes to the legendary jazz and soul musicians who have inspired Gerry throughout his career and you get an unbeatable format for a great gig.
The band also cover songs by Mose Allison, Donald Fagen, Van Morrison, John Martin, Sting, Gil Scott Heron, Rufus Thomas and Stevie Wonder. A funky April Thursday night is guaranteed!
The quartet features Garry Linsley on alto saxophone, Rod Sinclair on guitar, the legendary Paul Smith on drums and Gerry on organ, bass and vocals.
Here's what the Independent on Sunday thought of the band:
‘Richardson's organ playing, drummer Paul Smith, and – best of all – an absolutely extraordinary guitarist named Rod Sinclair, were so on-the- money they made you laugh out loud with delight.'
The members of the quartet have a collective CV that includes work with Guy Barker, Vinnie Colaiuta, Snake Davis, Harry 'Sweets' Edison, Billy Joel,
Mark Knopfler, John Miles, Billy Ocean, Alan Price, Annie Ross, Martin Stephenson, Sting, Jimmy Witherspoon and too many more to mention.
They know what they're doing!'
