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!

Strictly Smokin' (not so) Big Band to present Live Stream session Tonight (May 14)

Tonight at just after 8:00pm, four of SSBB's hotshots will stream a live session from the lockdown of their own homes. Alice Grace (vocals); Dave Kerridge (tenor sax); Pete Tanton (trumpet) and Graham Don (keys) are well known to the band's many followers and this will be a rare opportunity to hear them in an intimate - albeit remote - setting.
PS: Note the live stream will actually start just after 8:00pm so as not to clash with the weekly Clap For Carers event taking place on your doorstep.
