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)

Q & A w. Dave Weisser & Jude Murphy - Part 3 of 3.

BSH: (to both) Who are your favourite musicians? Do you ever have musical disagreements, do you criticise each other? And finally, who does the cooking? I remember Dave bringing his homemade apple cake to the Chilli one night and it was delicious!

Favourite musicians:

Dave:  Miles and Coltrane, of course, goes without saying. Cannonball Adderley. Nat Adderley on cornet.  Keith Jarrett, Michael and Randy Brecker (another sax and horn sibling combo), Al Jarreau and George Benson, and I love the Yellowjackets.

Jude: Literally every single one on Dave’s list, plus Kenny Garrett. And everyone knows I have a real thing for Marcus Miller. I also adore Brazilian music, particularly Milton Nascimento and Elis Regina. And then there’s Billie Holiday, Cassandra Wilson, Madeleine Peyroux. Nile Rogers.  Steely Dan. Too many to mention really.

Dave: We don’t have musical disagreements, really.  Jude does most of the cooking but she can’t come near the standard of my apple cake.

Jude: Sometimes I ask Dave to critique something I’m doing but he won’t.  This is a royal pain, but it’s really sweet too.

BSH: Great catching up with you both. Let’s hope it won’t be too long before we can do it in person. Oh and, by the way, I love the publicity shot! - Lance
