Bebop Spoken There

Charlie Musselwhite: "I used to see these posters in the windows of the [Chicago] blues clubs advertising Elmore James and Muddy Waters which knocked me out. I was making a note of the addresses and at night I'd go back and listen to the blues until 4-5 in the morning." - (Blues Matters! Aug/Sep 2021)

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
