Bebop Spoken There

Tina May: "It's a broad umbrella, jazz, but to me there has to be improvisation. If that's not there, to me, it's not really jazz." - (Jazzwise March 2021)

Sting in Store and Bebop in a Bottle

Shopping for essentials in Home Bargains this morning the music coming over the tannoy system was Sting's Don't Stand So Close to Me.
Very appropriate, I thought as I adjusted my face mask.

Later I called into my corner shop for more essentials and found, amidst all the lagers and ciders, bottles of Greene King's Yardbird  Pale Ale. It's described as being Inspired by bold American IPA's and named after the American jazz legend Charlie 'Bird' Parker. Full of hops with a lasting fruity flavour.

I'll drink to that!
Lance
