Bebop Spoken There

John McLaughlin: "I had just recently hooked up with Billy Cobham on the Jack Johnson album with Miles. And I loved the way Billy played. We got really tight after that. So he was the first guy I called [when I formed Mahavishnu Orchestra)." - (JazzTimes July/August 2021)

The Things They Say!

Shoeshop Quartet @ King's Hall, Newcastle University - Nov. 15

Ruth Lambert; Laurie Shepherd; Hannah Taylor; Meghann Clancy

Mr SandmanDiamonds Are a Girl's Best FriendCheek to Cheek - a shoe shopper's delight. 'Les Girls' - Ruth, a seated Laurie (baby bump showing!), Hannah and Meghann - took a break from Christmas shoe-shopping to call into King's Hall to sing a few songs.

Dressed for the occasion in retro chic outfits, the female barbershop quartet performed acoustically to a near full house. Ms Ruth Lambert, singing the bass lines, commandeered the tuning harp as the faux fur-wearing quartet presented a GASbook to late twentieth century popular song set.      

King's Hall's French-built, recently installed pipe organ stood silent as our jazz-infused quartet enjoyed singing a few quirky numbers including Lady Gaga's Bad Romance and the Jackson 5's dance floor filler I Want You Back

At the scheduled two o'clock finish an audience of Friends of King's Hall Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy types and three line-whipped music students erupted into huge applause.
