Bebop Spoken There

Alan Barnes: "Normally you can cobble a set together with five guys on the back of an envelope over the first pint and it's just fine. Livestreaming isn't like that." - (Jazzwise July 2021)

Jazz Café Jam Session Tuesday August 2.

(Review by Lance).
Earlier in the day Paul Gowland and Kath Jobes tied the knot and the celebrations spilled over into the Caff with a never ending flow of musicians on and off the stand. Too much happening to list chapter and verse save to say it was probably the best ever jam there since Harry Connick Jr and co. wandered in back in the dark and distant past!
So, working on the principle that a picture paints a thousand words, I've put it all together in album form.
Special photo album.
Lance.
PS: Oh yes, congratulations and best wishes to the newlyweds.

The jam session to end all jam sessions! Someone remarked that it should have been recorded.
