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)

KSTV: Will Arnold-Forster Trio - Jan. 29

Will Arnold-Forster (guitar); Will Sach (bass); Will Cleasby (drums).

The image on the KS website showed Giacomo Smith playing clarinet. At last a change from the trio permutations that we have had since Tuesday! Or so I thought ... Alas, just like last night, a change of programme - no Giacomo - so it was yet another trio.

Don't get me wrong, the trios have all been fine and relatively varied however ... 

Still, in these beleaguered times, let's be thankful for whatever's on offer and tonight was interesting in giving us the opportunity to compare the various trio formats. It was also good to hear Gigi Gryce's Social Call which is a great tune with or without the words and was one of the best numbers of the whole week although Autumn Nocturne ran it close.
Lance

Social Call; Laverne Walk; Down From Antigua; Whims of Chambers; Autumn Nocturne; My Little Suede Shoes + a Peter Bernstein tune and an unannounced one.
