Bebop Spoken There

Immanuel Wilkins: "I'm against the notion of telling a story through lyrics. Dialogue or language can take away from the musical meaning. Words can do a disservice." - (The Hot House Jazz Guide January 19, 2021)

More Obituaries

You may have already been aware of these deaths recently. George Galway died  4 Oct age 79. Played flute, tenor sax. Clarinet around the Manchester area. He was the brother of James Galway the well-known flute player. Also Ira Sullivan another great musician died in Miami aged 89.I saw him a few times in Europe with Red Rodney - he was incredible on anything that had a mouthpiece! A real be-bop legend. I heard yesterday that tenorman Eric Traub had died - sometime last year I believe.

Michael Farmer.

Lance: Thanks Michael for the update - difficult keeping track of them all. May they Rest In Peace.
