Bebop Spoken There

Binker Golding: "The purest jazz was often the most danceable. Somewhere along the way, we exchanged danceability for complexity, and I see a lot of what I do as a way of giving that back to people." - (Jazziz, Winter 2020).

Jazz Café update

The Jazz Café’s famed jam session returns tonight (Tuesday 16). An update, or, if truth be told, a correction…the house drummer will be the brilliant Russ Morgan working alongside pianist Paul Edis and bassist Paul Grainger. An earlier posting indicated that Matt MacKellar would be behind the traps. Well, he will be, but as a sitter-in. So, that’s two top class drummers for starters, and as is the way with this amazing jam session, others could well be looking to get behind the traps.

It is likely that Joel Brown will be in the house, similarly, alto saxophonist Dan Garel is rumoured to be up for it. One of the joys of the session (first and third Tuesdays in the month) is in not knowing who will turn up to sit-in and invariably being knocked out by their musicianship. The evening gets underway at eight o’clock with the house trio playing three or four numbers and then it’s open to all comers. Arrive early, grab a ringside seat, it’s the greatest free show in town!
