Bebop Spoken There

Brian Dee: "I feel my generation had one advantage over today's players in that we were not musically educated in colleges, so we all sounded different. I could tell who it was just by the sound." - (Jazz Rag, Summer 2020).

Kinkajous & Grey Tapes @ Gosforth Civic Theatre - July 25

Kinkajous: Adrien Cau (tenor/bass clarinet); Benoit Parmener (drums); Maria Chiara Argiro, Jack Doherty (keys); Andres Castellanos (bass guitar).

Grey Tapes: Mr Blazey, Bert Verso, Calum Howard, Bain (electronica); Dan Potter (drums).

I hold up my hand and confess that, in a world of horses for courses, I was the wrong horse for this course and, as such, it would be unfair of me to attempt to review something that I didn't understand. 
This parade passed me by completely. 
Cau had some moments on both tenor and bass clarinet but, overall, I was struggling although the others present in the well-attended auditorium were very appreciative of both bands so it looks like I'm the one who's out of step.
