Bebop Spoken There

Avishai Cohen (trumpet): "This is my main thing right now: Live in the here and now, take things one day at a time. I'm stopping everything I can, and stripping everything to the bone. I'm spending a lot of time listening to music, playing, going for walks, enjoying my kids." - (DownBeat June 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)

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
