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)

Continuing with the educational theme, albeit closer to home, Brent March co-leader of The Jazz Hands Quintet sent me this video of their version of Black Orpheus . All five are students on the Bmus course at Sage Gateshead and may be remembered from some appearances at the Jazz Café jams last year. They have made rapid advances as a group since then as this recording shows.
Full personnel is: Callum Mellis (trumpet); Brent March (guitar); Inês Gonçalves (keys); Jordan Maddison (bass guitar); Brad Davison (drums).
Who's to say that some of these musicians won't be playing in the Berklee Concert Jazz Orchestra in the future?
