Bebop Spoken There

Rickie Lee Jones: "There's lots of music and not so much celebrity. I guess I'll stay here [New Orleans] for a while if it doesn't get washed away in the flood." - (The Observer 18.04.21)

Tonight: Alan Barnes Quartet livestreaming from the 606 Club

Tonight, online from the 606 Club, saxophone supremo Alan Barnes will be livestreaming in the company of Robin Aspland (piano); Andrew Cleyndert (bass) and Alfonso Vitale (drums). 

Barnesy has been relatively quiet during the lockdown season and I can't recall many, if indeed any online sessions until tonight which makes this rather special. However, for a man whose touring schedule is usually along the lines of Monday: Aberdeen. Tuesday: Plymouth. Wednesday: Manchester etc., what he's lost in gig money is probably made up for in petrol savings! 

With tickets at a mere £5.95, this promises to be a worthwhile investment.

One question. Will the lack of an in-house audience curtail his humourous patter between numbers? I hope not, that's worth the money alone!

8:00pm. Tickets here.
