Bebop Spoken There

Faye McCalman: "For a while I would hear other artists and feel that I need to be like that person, have what they have; but then I realised that everyone has their own thing and what I connect with most is when I can tell an artist is just being themselves." - (Jazzwise July 2021)

Joe Webb live streaming from his European hideaway - Jan. 30

Joe Webb (piano)   

Joe began today's session saying he would be playing a few more tunes (eleven in total) rather than the eight or so he'd usually play during his weekly Saturday afternoon live stream. And a what a varied set list! First, Bill Evans, then Hoagy and onto Thelonious Monk and Keith Jarrett. Distinctive, individual voices, stylistically varied, all well within our pianist's compass.

Each number was a request from Joe's growing online fanbase. Someone bowled him a dolly...could he play Goats?  Could he? Joe wrote it! You can buy it from Joe's Bandcamp, the tune is on his latest EP For Everything Else. A Jelly Roll Morton number, a 12-bar country blues - Corrina, Corrina (first recorded by Bo Carter way back in 1928) and some Scott Joplin. Joe said this would be the first time he'd ever played The Entertainer You'd never have guessed. Whatever Joe is required to play, he'll play it as if for the umpteenth time. 

Coming up to an hour later, Joe signed off with B from his 2019 EP, Daydreamer. This one was a full-on piece of European classical romanticism dedicated to his girlfriend. Everyone say: Ah!
