Bebop Spoken There

Charlie Musselwhite: "I used to see these posters in the windows of the [Chicago] blues clubs advertising Elmore James and Muddy Waters which knocked me out. I was making a note of the addresses and at night I'd go back and listen to the blues until 4-5 in the morning." - (Blues Matters! Aug/Sep 2021)

The Things They Say!

Hudson Music: Lance's "Bebop Spoken Here" is one of the heaviest and most influential jazz blogs in the UK.

Jackie Paris

Just watched 'Tis Autumn: The Search for Jackie Paris a fantastic documentary about, to quote from the film, "The greatest voice you've never heard".

Well, I'd heard of him - he was a legend - but never actually heard him. However, thanks to Marc Myers and Jazz Wax I'm now a much wiser man and one who wishes he'd chased down those elusive recordings all those years ago.

Fortunately, there are some tracks available on Spotify and YouTube but me, I'm going down those mean streets like the Vinyl Detective in search of the real thing although I don't suppose I'll have much luck in Jarrow.
