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: Haruka Kikuchi - June 28

Haruka Kikuchi (trombone); Z2 Tsuji (keys); Nobu Ozaki (bass).

It looked to be hot, and I mean hot hot, way down yonder in New Orleans. On the bayou, I guess the 'gators were lazing in the shade, the steam rising, whilst I doubt that anyone would be parading on South Rampart St.

However, despite the hot and humid atmosphere, Haruka, Z2, and Nobu set up shop in the front garden and delighted us with a splendid afternoon's music.


Sunday; Sweet Sue; Ice Cream; A Hundred Years From Today; a Basie number that will give me sleepless nights until I put a name to it; After You've Gone (a killer piano solo from Z2); Ory's Creole Trombone; Tin Roof Blues and The World is Waiting For the Sunrise which was a topical tune to finish off with although the sun had well and truly arrived in the Crescent City. This latter tune had a few "one more time" endings.

Shouta was relatively tame this week apart from some slide-whistle contributions. Nobu was solid but, like Haruka's announcements, needed the volume cranked up to be heard properly.

Rapidly becoming a Sunday must!
Lance.
