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)

RIP Dave Bartholomew

Just heard that Dave Bartholomew the New Orleans trumpet player and R & B legend died yesterday aged 100 years and six months. I only know of him via his association with Fats Domino but he contributed to a host of great recordings in the genre. As there are so many obituaries of him online already I'm not going to single one out so just Google Dave Bartholomew and you will be spoilt for choice.
