Bebop Spoken There

Charlie Musselwhite: "I used to see these posters in the windows of the [Chicago] blues clubs advertising Elmore James and Muddy Waters which knocked me out. I was making a note of the addresses and at night I'd go back and listen to the blues until 4-5 in the morning." - (Blues Matters! Aug/Sep 2021)

The Things They Say!

Tonight on BBC4

If you're staying in tonight then BBC4 is the place to be.
They're showing the final of the 2018 BBC Young Jazz Musician of the Year competition that was held at the South Bank Centre as part of the EFG London Jazz Festival.

The five finalists for this year's award were Xhosa Cole (saxophone), Reuben Goldmark (piano), Fergus McCreadie (piano), James Owston (bass) and Seth Tackaberry (bass).
May the best musician win.
The programme goes out at 21:00 hours.
----- 
Earlier, at 20:00 hours, Soweto Kinch takes us on his own journey through jazz in London, New Orleans and New York.
The programme is repeated at 02:30 hours.
Lance.

A deserving winner in Xhosa Cole (saxophone), I thought. Good to see Seth Tackaberry on stage again - he was in Hexham, not long ago ( https://lance-bebopspokenhere.blogspot.com/2018/09/harry-greene-quartet-hexham-abbey.html )!

Agreed on both counts. Also, Fergus McCreadie gave an impressive performance at the Globe last year. All five contestants were deserving of their place in the final and we will watch out for their future development.
Also pleased that the winner didn't opt for all originals.
