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)

RIP Joe Robinson (1963 - 2021)

I tuned into Jazz Record Requests last Sunday and Alan Shipton mentioned the passing of Joe Robinson. a fine tenor player who I heard many times at the Lift Club near Brighton station when I used to go down south to visit family.A record was played that featured Joe on tenor, John Donaldson piano, Simon Thorpe bass and the great Spike Wells on drums. I saw him with a quartet that had his brother on piano and he was in a big band called “People With Instruments”. The LP that the track was taken from got a great review on the site All that Jazz.
