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)

Haruka Kikuchi - Live Stream from New Orleans - Sept. 13

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

It may have been warm enough to bask out in the sun at Newcastle but over in New Orleans it mustn't have been so conducive to gig outdoors as this week's Sunday session from the Kikuchi household took place indoors.

The trio were in top form rattling through a selection of good old good ones "aided and abetted" by Shouta who made more noise with his rattles and shakers than your average Latin percussionist.


Despite all the extraneous noises, the lady of the house blew some fine unladylike gut bucket trombone and Z2, on the steam piano, covered a whole range of styles from Jelly Roll to Jarrett with Ozaki on bass holding it all together.

Always an enjoyable - Shouta notwithstanding - session.
Lance.

The temperature in NOLA certainly wasn't conducive to being outdoors at 31°.
