Bebop Spoken There

Ethan Iverson: "Oscar Peterson famously said that Bud [Powell] played just too many wrong notes. He was really critical of Bud as a player, which I think is not right." - (DownBeat March 2021)

Live streaming from Jack's Place #4 - Feb. 17

Jamie Brownfield (trumpet); Andrzej Baranek (keyboards); Ed Harrison (double bass); Jack Cotterill (drums)

Indiana for starters, bright and breezy, Jamie Brownfield on a hiding to nothing taking the role of Louis Armstrong. Jack Cotterill's focus this evening was on Armstrong's Ambassador Satch album recorded during a mid-fifties European tour. Brownfield did as well as any trumpeter taking on West end BluesUndecided was decidedly swift, Cotterill on the ride cymbal, kicking it along as Louis, sorry, Jamie, blew hotter than hot, Andrzej Baranek, keyboards and bassist Ed Harrison admirably keeping up. 
A couple more before the hour was up...Irving Berlin's The Song is Ended (But the Melody Lingers On) featuring a swinging piano solo from Baranek, and to finish, to quote Cotterill, a quite mental  take on Tiger Rag. Next week (Wed 24) an hour of requests.
