Bebop Spoken There

John McLaughlin: "I had just recently hooked up with Billy Cobham on the Jack Johnson album with Miles. And I loved the way Billy played. We got really tight after that. So he was the first guy I called [when I formed Mahavishnu Orchestra)." - (JazzTimes July/August 2021)

Talking jazz at Ushaw Durham Jazz Festival

Next week’s Ushaw Durham Jazz Festival (26-28 August) features a host of top class musicians including Alan Barnes, Bruce Adams and Nigel Price. Some of the north’s own superstars, and, rising stars, will proudly represent the region – Zoë Gilby for one, the fabulous Durham Alumni Big Band and the dedicated archeologists and archivists collectively known as the New Century Ragtime Orchestra.
Visual artist Dave Barden will be on hand to document whatever takes his fancy, so do take time to view some of his work which will be on show during the festival, and you must make a point of hearing Alyn Shipton – broadcaster, producer, writer, musician –   in conversation with musician and raconteur Alan Barnes. They will be pondering that most intractable question…What is jazz? at four o’clock on Saturday August 27.
Ahead of his visit to Ushaw, Alan Shipton has kindly participated in a Q&A with Bebop Spoken Here…
Russell.
