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)

Ushaw’s Big Idea

Bebop Spoken Here’s roving County Durham reporter Tony Eales enjoyed an evening at Ushaw College listening to Gerry Richardson’s Big Idea. The previous evening Hoochie Coochie’s Thursday crowd danced the night away to Richardson’s ‘soul jazz’ quartet. A powerful outfit in its own right, nevertheless the quartet cedes to the big beast that is the Big Idea. Eales counted them in and out noting Adam Sinclair in the drum chair, Gordon Marshall alongside fellow trumpeter Dave Hignett and Stuart Johnson playing tenor. The diminutive Sue Ferris packed her usual big punch on baritone and Eales was particularly impressed with her fabulous flute playing. Check out www.ushaw.org for details of next month’s gig. It’s a good ‘un.
