Bebop Spoken There

Ethan Iverson: "Oscar Peterson famously said that Bud [Powell] played just too many wrong notes. He was really critical of Bud as a player, which I think is not right." - (DownBeat March 2021)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY JOHN FORSTER & CAROLINE STEPHEN

RIP Sonny Fortune.

Dave Brownlow has drawn my attention to the death of saxophonist Sonny Fortune who passed away on October 25. I never actually heard him live although recordings indicate that, although he was at the forefront of contemporary playing, he was also at home in straight ahead sessions.
There's a comprehensive obituary in the New York Times.
He was 79.
RIP.
Lance.
