Bebop Spoken There

Paul Edis: "One of the regulars at The Gala today called me a 'turncoat' and another a 'deserter' - that's a very northern way of displaying affection in response to the news that I'm leaving the area. 'They're vicious down there mind you'. " - (Twitter January24, 2020)

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.
