Bebop Spoken There

Clare Teal: "If you're brought up in a working-class family, you haven't got money for records so everything you get hold of, you treasure, learn to love, and I loved those Ella tapes." - (Radio Times 23-29 January 2021)

RIP Clarence Fountain

Clarence Fountain, lead singer with the Blind Boys of Alabama passed away in Baton Rouge on June 3. He was 88.
I saw the gospel group at Sage Gateshead in May 2014 although I'm not sure if Fountain, one of the group's founders members, was with them as although he had officially retired he still made occasional appearances and tours although it had been reported, prior to the tour, that he was in ill health even back then. 
He will be sadly missed by the group's many fans.
Lance.
