Bebop Spoken There

Noah Haidu: "He [Kenny Kirkland] had zero interest in having a public persona and seeking out record-label attention; he didn't have an interest in becoming known." - (Jazz Times January/February 2021)

A Musical Gem On Radio 4: Julius Eastman – November 6

I caught this item by chance at 11.30am as I was washing dishes. Julius Eastman was an innovative classical musician who lived from 1940 to 1990. His music was partly minimalist and sounded much like free jazz, with wildly strange-sounding parts for singers, at least that was what the pieces played during the programme indicated. He has been overlooked as a composer, possibly because he was black and gay, at a time when black musicians were more likely to play jazz. (In fact, he had a brother who was a jazz musician.) So BSH readers may well want to catch this on the iPlayer, especially if they like free jazz. Highly recommended.
