Bebop Spoken There

Ethan Iverson: "Oscar Peterson famously said that Bud [Powell] played just too many wrong notes. He was really critical of Bud as a player, which I think is not right." - (DownBeat March 2021)

Classic Swing @ Ashington Jazz Club.


Bob Wade (trumpet/flugel/clarinet); Jim McBriarty (sax/clarinet); Malcolm Armstrong (piano); Alan Rudd (bass); Ian Hetherington (drums); Olive Rudd (vocal).

(Proxy review by Lance)
John Taylor, the Norman Granz of Ashington, tells me that Bob Wade's Classic Swing played some classic swing on their first visit to The Elephant - HQ of AJC.
He sent me the set list to prove it and backed it up with a Facebook video. Ian Hetherington was a late dep on drums and, I'm told, brought the house down.
Classic Swing can also be heard Monday lunchtimes at the Marquis of Granby, Sunniside.
Lance.
