Bebop Spoken There

Avishai Cohen (trumpet): "This is my main thing right now: Live in the here and now, take things one day at a time. I'm stopping everything I can, and stripping everything to the bone. I'm spending a lot of time listening to music, playing, going for walks, enjoying my kids." - (DownBeat 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)

The Things They Say!

Body and Soul @ Dormans Jazz Club, Middlesbrough - October 4

Richie Emmerson (tenor sax); Kevin Eland (trumpet/flugel); Rick Laughlin (keys/ synthesizer);  Keith Peberdy (bass); Stuie Ellerton (drums).
(Review by Ron H)
It was a pleasure to have a top-class Teesside quintet as this month's guest band.
Cantaloupe Island gave the audience a taste of what was in store. A driving version of Bobby Timmons' Moanin' followed and then a particular favourite of mine, an up-tempo South of the Soho Border with great interaction and solos all-round.
One of Miles Davis's most famous tunes - Milestones - was played with style and precision followed by two more Miles related numbers, So What and Four. 
The mood changed with a fine arrangement of  Norwegian Wood. 
A beautiful ballad, L'il Darlin', from the classic album The Atomic Mr Basie was played with sensitivity and clarity before the night finished off with the Crusaders' The Hustler.
This was music to satisfy the most discerning of jazz aficionados. The band playing so well together and great solos from all five made for a memorable evening.
