Bebop Spoken There

Alan Barnes: "Normally you can cobble a set together with five guys on the back of an envelope over the first pint and it's just fine. Livestreaming isn't like that." - (Jazzwise July 2021)

Archive quotes.

A Handful of Gongs

The Queen's Birthday Honours List hasn't exactly done the jazz world many favours this time round. In fact the only out and out jazzer is Roy Williams who can now proudly dangle an MBE badge on the end of his trombone slide. Sadly, because of his reportedly failing health, that probably won't happen. Nevertheless, we send Roy our congratulations and wish him well.

Mica Paris also scores for an MBE reminding me of a rather special night at Hoochie Coochie a few years back. "Can someone get me a high stool?" She asked the audience. I was able to oblige - I should have taken it home as a souvenir!

Talking of Hoochie, if anyone deserves a medal it is Warren who runs the best club in Newcastle.

Tommy Steele is now Sir Thomas Hicks. What's he doing on a jazz blog? I hear you ask. Well he did appear in a stage version of the Glenn Miller Story.

Joan Armatrading and Tony Hatch will also be playing The Palace - maybe they'll all pop round to Ronnie's afterwards ... Princess Margaret usually did!
