Bebop Spoken There

Belá Fleck: "...he [Chick Corea] brought out the best in musicians. Not only would you get to play with him, but you'd get to play with the best version of yourself." - (DownBeat April 2021).

Adrian Cox live streaming 'My favourite clarinettist' - Feb. 28

Adrian Cox (clarinet, vocals) 

Adrian Cox is currently basking in early spring sunshine at a hotel spa complex in Sandanski in the south of Bulgaria. Ostensibly, our man is there to record some new material and play a few gigs. Nice work if you can get it! The hotel proprietor is more than happy for our clarinetist to continue with his weekly Sunday Service live streams, so, here we are again, one o'clock Sunday, this week direct from a Bulgarian holiday resort. 

Adrian's favourite clarinetist is Edmond Hall, so much so our 'vacationing' live streamer recently completed a tour of some two and a half years promoting his Profoundly Blue album. The tour set list formed the basis of today's Sunday Service. Dardanella, perhaps Hall's signature tune, began the one hour set. Our Sunday preacher has mastered the art of multitasking: playing, singing, reading on-screen comments and chatting to his 100+ online flock, all the while keeping an eye on the technical side of things. 

Adrian recalled sitting-in as a thirteen year old at a regular session at the Marquis of Granby pub in Sompting, Sussex featuring a host of seasoned musicians. One of the first tunes he got to play with them was Tishomingo Blues. So, today he played and sang it. Edmond Hall recorded In a Shanty in Old Shanty Town on Adrian's birthday, albeit 39 years before he was born. Our man joked it was as if Hall had recorded it especially for him! Time for one more tune...You Made Me Love You (I Didn't Want to Do It). One online observer, none other than drummer Jack Cotterill, commented: The ability to swing like f*** on your own. Quite.
