Bebop Spoken There

Clare Teal: "If you're brought up in a working-class family, you haven't got money for records so everything you get hold of, you treasure, learn to love, and I loved those Ella tapes." - (Radio Times 23-29 January 2021)

The Things They Say!

As a young lad in the early 70s listening to -Time for Tyner, Chicks Now She Sings Now She Sobs, The Prisoner by Herbie, George Duke with Jean Luc Ponty, furtively purchased from Dobells in Charing Cross Road with my first year of pittance wages, I found Blues for the Viet Cong by Stanley Cowell, wow, and along with the better known quartet trio above played Electric as well. Did he ever come to the North East? RIP Stanley
