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)

Preview: Gerry Richardson @ Jazz Café Thursday June 2

You wait for an hour then three come along at once. This might seem to be the case with Gerry Richardson's Big Idea - but aren't we glad we waited?! After a hiatus of several years, the Big Idea became a good idea again popping up at Hoochie and the Jazz Café. They are back at the latter venue this Thursday June 2. If you caught this (I quote) Hammond Organ led nine piece Funk, Latin, African and straight ahead swing  powerhouse. Lyrical altoist Garry Linsley lines up alongside acclaimed saxophonists Sue Ferris and Stuart Johnson, while the brass section of Gordon Marshall, Dave Hignett and David Gray pack a punch worthy of Muhammed Ali. Guitarist Rod Sinclair is a virtuoso at home in everything from classic jazz to R'n'B, while the whole ensemble is driven relentlessly forward by the leader's dynamic work on the Hammond Organ and Adam Sinclair at the drums.  (unquote) band then you will know what to expect - or will you? I'm told there are new charts in the pad. If you are new to the experience - don't miss it. You might find me dossing in the doorway just to be sure!
Lance.
Thursday June 2, Jazz Café 8pm. £6.
