Bebop Spoken There

Dave Puddy: "Eventually we paid our entrance money [to Eel Pie Island] and fought our way to one of the many bars where we could buy our Newcastle Brown and retire to the back of the heaving dancefloor. There must have been lights somewhere, but my memory remains of being in some dark cavernous wonderland." - (Just Jazz July 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)

Big Muddy @ the Prohibition Bar - August 4

John Haylock (baritone); Gordon Brown (alto, clarinet, vocals); Nigel Robson (trombone); Lionel Hehir (guitar); Stu Halliday (drums); Dave Weisser (cornet, vocals); Jude Murphy (bass guitar, vocals).
(Review by John T.)
Why have I not heard this band before? I’ve been following Dave Weisser’s Take it to the Bridge for many years and did not know he worked with other outfits! 
Big Muddy are well rehearsed and have a balanced line-up. Above all else, they really do SWING – not just good readers!! The well thought out programme at the Prohibition had a range of styles and influences:-
Cantaloupe Island, Every Day I Have the Blues, Fine Brown Frame, Cissy Strut. Moanin', Big Noise from Winnetka, Put It Where You Want It, Don't Wait Too Long. My Little Suede Shoes, Georgia on my Mind, I Wish I Could Shimmy Like My Sister Kate. Stolen Moments, Hayburner, Pencil Full of Lead, Knock On Wood, Royal Garden Blues, The Preacher, Chitlins Con Carne, Peter Gunn, Mustang Sally and my all time favourite - Watermelon Man.
Congratulations to the Manager at the Prohibition for providing us with this FREE event (& also  a nice bottle of their own ale)
Here’s hoping we are able to bring this band to Ashington Jazz Club sometime during the autumn season, starting in September.
