Bebop Spoken There

Dave Puddy: "Eventually we paid our entrance money [to Eel Pie Island] and fought our way to one of the many bars where we could buy our Newcastle Brown and retire to the back of the heaving dancefloor. There must have been lights somewhere, but my memory remains of being in some dark cavernous wonderland." - (Just Jazz July 2020)

Dave Rempis:Ten years from now, I can see musicians streaming concerts in real time and charging a minimal amount for people to watch.” - (DownBeat September 2013)

A worthy winner, can't wait to see it. My son saw it yesterday(he lives in USA) and praised it.

Yes, indeed - I'll definitely be seeing it, sometime - it's had wonderful reviews, and sounds like a truly inspiring story.
