Bebop Spoken There

Brian Dee: "I feel my generation had one advantage over today's players in that we were not musically educated in colleges, so we all sounded different. I could tell who it was just by the sound." - (Jazz Rag, Summer 2020).

Paul Edis: Lockdown Live #11 - May 29

Paul Edis (piano/vocals).

Is it 11 weeks already? Doesn't time just fly when you're enjoying yourself?!

Once again Doc Edis produced a lot of  numbers previously unplayed in this ongoing series of GASbook goodies.  

How High the Moon delivered in a more balladic style as opposed to the normal thrash by singers such as Ella and June Christy.

Tony Eales requested Waltz For Debby and Paul obliged with a fine version of the Bill Evans' classic. Bernie's Tune by Bernie Miller had me wondering why Bernie didn't write more tunes.

Even without Stan Getz blowing tenor, Desafinado is still one of the better Jobim tunes and Paul did it justice. Freddie Freeloader followed with a nod to the late Jimmy Cobb. 

Wrap Your Troubles in Dreams - Paul gave his vocal chords another outing on this one.

A couple of gems - A Sleeping Bee which was, like the next tune, But Beautiful.

A third vocal! Days of Wine and Roses.

Softly As in a Morning Sunrise. Done in 7, it offered an interesting alternative. 

An Edis original, Lucky Eleven (I think) and Chick Corea's La Fiesta brought the show to a close - yet another happy hour.
