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)

Today

As we all know there are no live gigs taking place in the immediate future. However, any links to jazz streaming that are deemed suitable - i.e. with a professional approach - will be considered for posting.

Ben and Bruce

On April 28, 1967 legendary tenor saxist Ben Webster played at Connaught Hall, in Newcastle. This was one of the earliest concerts promoted by Jazz North East. I was there and remember it well although not well enough to remember the Pat Smythe Trio.

According to Chris Yates' memoir Blue Horizons the concert is listed as being with Bruce Turner's Jump Band which begs the question: did the the Jump Band play a separate set and, if so, why weren't they billed? or did they come in as a last minute replacement?

Interested to hear from others who were there whose memory may have lasted longer than mine!
