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).

This isn't an actual review of tonight's gig at The Globe by the John Pope Quintet, I think JNE, who co-promoted the live stream with the Jazz Co-op, may be sending something from their own reviewer but, I couldn't allow this screenshot from Debra not to be shared - it's the only way to watch!

As for the gig itself it was interesting and there were some choice moments from each of the players.

Having followed John Pope from his early days sitting in at jam sessions to today where he is on the cusp of national recognition was, in itself, enough to add a personal feelgood factor to the gig.
