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 Rick Taylor.

Just heard the sad news that trombonist Rick Taylor passed away after suffering a heart attack at his home in Scotland.

Back in the 1980s (I think) Rick was often heard at The Corner House with various ensembles. He was also a much-respected educator a role that continued when he moved to Scotland where he worked across the genres in a variety of settings.

A further post will follow as more details become available.

Very sadly missed.
Lance
