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)

Jambone, full house, Eales impressed


County Durham correspondent Tony Eales reports that there was a full house at the Lubetkin Theatre for the visit of Jambone. On Thursday evening (June 28) Sage Gateshead's youth jazz ensemble made the short trip down the A19 to perform at East Durham College in Peterlee. TE couldn't recall the band sounding better - high praise indeed!

Earlier in the evening Mollie McKeown sang with guitar accompaniment and southpaw guitarist Nathan Lawson not only impressed with his classic Joe Pass-like playing but, according to TE, the youthful Mr Lawson entertained his audience with a few witty observations along the way.
