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: Playback session - Introducing...Rubén González. Feb. 27

Alex Ridout (trumpet); Will Barry (piano); Will Sach (bass); Jas Kayser (drums/percussion); João Caetano (percussion).

An evening of Cuban music celebrating a legendary album. I say "legendary" as that's what came up when I Googled although, in truth, I was unfamiliar with it although I did know of the Buena Vista Social Club of which Rubén González was once a part of.

It was very well played and I was impressed by Barry's piano feature Como Siento Yo and Caetano played some amazing things on congas, timbales and the various other items in his bag of tricks. Jas too occasionally stood back from her modified kit to shake and scrape things. Alex was relatively subdued until the final number when she really cut loose giving us a timely reminder of the jazz chops that won her the 2016 BBC Young Jazz Musician of the Year award.

Overall, beautifully executed as it was, it didn't inspire me to visit Cuba.
