Bebop Spoken There

Anat Cohen: "With the tenor, it's so iconic with jazz. With the clarinet, I can improvise, but it doesn't have to be called jazz." - (DownBeat July 2019)

RIP Peter Boizot.

Anyone who has visited a Pizza Express jazz venue owes a debt of gratitude to Peter Boizot who died on Wednesday, December 5, aged 89.
A lover of Italian food and jazz he managed to combine the two, particularly at his Dean St., Soho, restaurant where many jazz names from both home and abroad appeared. He literally 'put his money where his mouth was'!
I have fond memories of Dean St having heard, among others, Lee Konitz, Scott Hamilton and Barry Harris whilst enjoying a house pizza washed down with a bottle (or two) of Peroni.
I have even fonder memories of the Holborn Pizza Express...
Let's raise a glass to his memory and the food and the music which lives on.
Rest In Peace.
Lance.
