Bebop Spoken There

Ethan Iverson: "Oscar Peterson famously said that Bud [Powell] played just too many wrong notes. He was really critical of Bud as a player, which I think is not right." - (DownBeat March 2021)

When Bix met Louis

 Bix Beiderbecke and Louis Armstrong met, went into the studio and recorded a session. Robert Forrest’s play Bix: Singing the Blues (Drama on 3, BBC Radio 3, Sunday 5 June, 9:00pm) ‘depicts a fictionalised version’ of their meeting. Brian Dick plays Bix and Eric Kofi Abrefa plays Louis in this welcome repeat. Original music is by Iain Johnstone.
Earlier, over on Radio 4 Extra, 4:00pm, Bonnie Greer’s musical drama Marilyn and Ella at the Mocambo charts Marilyn Monroe’s efforts in the 1950s to help Ella Fitzgerald get a booking at the Mocambo.
