Bebop Spoken There

Ed Palermo: "[Frank] Zappa's humor was very rarely self-deprecating, and mine is almost always self-deprecating. The beauty of it is that no one gets hurt." - (DownBeat February, 2021)

Livestream: Dom Pipkin's Saturday Piano Truth

Dom Pipkin (piano/vocals).

So, after dressing up for Rico, it was time to dress down for Dom and a Saturday night of "Piano Truth" - it's true, no word of a lie!

I was marginally late so I only caught the end of a rollicking, rocking and rolling opener but I heard enough to know that our man was up for it. The grand piano has 88 notes and it sounded as though he was hitting at least 44 of them at any one time. And, not only that, he's hollerin' the blues like as though he was at a Mississippi prayer meeting (well, maybe not a prayer meeting.)


Numbers such as James Booker's Bald Headed Woman may have been typical but we also heard beautiful, tender, versions of Moonlight in Vermont and Dream a little Dream of me which were interspersed between Hound Dog and You're Swell When You're Well - it was the next best thing to a Covid-19 vaccine!
