Bebop Spoken There

Immanuel Wilkins: "I'm against the notion of telling a story through lyrics. Dialogue or language can take away from the musical meaning. Words can do a disservice." - (The Hot House Jazz Guide January 19, 2021)

The Things They Say!

Roll on 2020

This coming October (11) sees the 100th anniversary of the birth of drummer Art Blakey. October (16) is also when he passed away 29 years ago. Needless to say, such a centennial is being remembered by a number of bands worldwide on record, on tour and, in this case, both.

Gaz Hughes has put together a line-up to die for - one that will surely do justice to Abdullah Ibn Buhaina (Art Blakey's adopted Muslim name).

As the above list of dates shows, the band are at Gosforth Civic Theatre on February 20 next year, put it in your diary now!
Lance.
CD Review to follow when available.
