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)

Eric Stutt Retires...

Veteran drummer Eric Stutt has announced his retirement (via F/b) as a drummer. At 81 he feels the time is right. Thanks for everything you've added to the local scene Eric, one of the best! However, until I see "Gretsch Drum Kit for sale (cymbals extra)" on eBay I won't believe it!
All the best Buddy (the capital B is intentional).
We all love you.
Lance.

So sad, going to miss your impeccable swinging beats and the way you interact with soloists, Eric. But if you feel it's right to retire now, then it must be, because you're an expert in timing! X
