Bebop Spoken There

Dave Puddy: "Eventually we paid our entrance money [to Eel Pie Island] and fought our way to one of the many bars where we could buy our Newcastle Brown and retire to the back of the heaving dancefloor. There must have been lights somewhere, but my memory remains of being in some dark cavernous wonderland." - (Just Jazz July 2020)

Dave Rempis:Ten years from now, I can see musicians streaming concerts in real time and charging a minimal amount for people to watch.” - (DownBeat September 2013)

Streaming Rico 'n' Brian - June 12

Rico Tomasso (trumpet); Brian Kellock (piano)

Another week, another in Rico Tomasso's Popup Louis series of live stream gigs. This evening Rico's tip jar-sharing buddy was none other than one of Scotland's finest, pianist Brian Kellock.

A meeting of minds this week...Tomasso and Kellock and Armstrong and Ellington. Duke's Black Butterfly to start. Rico revealed he first met Brian in Edinburgh, they went on to play duo gigs together and this evening's lockdown duo continued with another Louis-Duke recording, Duke's I'm Just a Lucky So and So. The sound of Brian's piano playing caught the ear of fellow Scot, and sometime Newcastle Black Swan jammer, Mr Martin Waugh with MW commenting Brian's sound was instantly recognisable. 


For Rico's mother - Someday Sweetheart with Brian's piano introduction setting up our host's fine trumpet playing. Mrs T no doubt approved, not least as the ending was one that Tomasso Snr perfected on clarinet!

One more number with this wonderful piano player, said Rico. Glancing at on-screen comments, a plug for the tip jar and tomorrow night's Dress Up Saturday set, then our duo took it out with Hoagy's Jubilee. Did Kellock steal the show with some tremendous playing on this one? Yeah, just about!
