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)

CD Review: Ken Schaphorst - How to Say Goodbye


(Review by Lance).
Schaphorst, a hotshot at New England Conservatory's Jazz Studies Dept., pays tribute to some of his most profound influences.
These include Herb Pomeroy. Like Schaphorst, one of the great jazz educationalists and a fine trumpet player, is remembered in the Ellingtonian feel of Blues For Herb with tenorist Donny McCaslin indicating why he's in everyone's black gig book.
Bob Brookmeyer is remembered in  Take Back the Country which was  inspired by Brookmeyer's controversial views on the 2000 presidential election although, looking back, today's pier six brawl makes that look like a pillow fight!
There is more, much more. A tribute to Schaphorst's grandmother who died at the age of 90 - Amnesia - was also inspired by Argentinian tango master Astor Piazzolla.
