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).

Three dudes blowin' on a riff

As Fenwick's window is currently hidden from view with its Christmas display taking shape, yesterday three dudes (see photo) set out their stall on Northumberland Street. No tunes as such, more blowin' on a riff. Will they turn up at tonight's Black Swan jam session?

In years to come, Northumberland St. may be given the same reverence as Basin St., 52nd St., Archer St. etc.

Ah - I heard these young dudes blowin' and bowin' in the same place today! It'd be great if they did turn up for some jammin' ..... I assume they were handed some BSH cards?

Your correspondent forgot to put BSH cards in his pocket and is now standing in the dunce's corner.
