Bebop Spoken There

Jasper Høiby: "These days everybody thinks they know something about everything, and there are so many opinions being aired all over the place that aren't fully formed because there are so many platforms to say anything you want to when you feel like it." - (Jazzwise 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)

Today

As we all know there are no live gigs taking place in the immediate future. However, any links to jazz streaming that are deemed suitable - i.e. with a professional approach - will be considered for posting.

Three Deaths - RIP Nathan, Stan and Maurice

Sadly, I overlooked these three deaths. Each one an iconic figure in their own way.
The links below will make you realise just why they were so highly thought of. Not just as musicians, but as human beings. May they all Rest In Peace, they were cornerstones of our music.
Lance.
Nathan Davis - American saxist and Jazz Educator - 81 (April 8).
Stan Reynolds - British trumpet player and bandleader - 92 (April14).
Maurice Reedus Jr. aka 'The Sax Man' - Legendary street performer in Cleveland, Ohio - 65 (April 16).
