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)

Preview: Born in Chicago - Sky Arts, Sunday (Oct 11)

Now that Sky Arts is available on Freeview it's worth checking the listings to see what's on. A case in point is Born in Chicago which is being screened on Sunday at 9:00pm. Directed by John Anderson, this 2013 documentary looks at a host of now famous names such as Mike Bloomfield, Paul Butterfield and Charlie Musselwhite who went in search of the Chicago blues greats - Muddy Waters, Hubert Sumlin et al. It should be well worth watching.

This is actually a entirely new film. The 2013 version was a very early edit.
