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)

Gerald Cannon Quartet live streaming from Small's, NYC - May 8

Justin Robinson (alto sax); Rick Germanson (piano); Gerald Cannon (double bass); Willie Jones (drums) + Michael Rörby (trombone) 

Gerald Cannon hails from Racine, Wisconsin, home to one of America's two annual Bix Fest celebrations. Meeting Milt Hinton proved pivotal and in time the lure of New York City would set him on a career path working with some of the great names in jazz, including touring with McCoy Tyner (in 2008 Sage Gateshead was on the itinerary). 

This Saturday evening set list at Spike Wilner's place ranged across original composition to a Thad Jones' chart to a couple of standards - You Don't Know What Love Is and Peri's Scope - to a 'rhythm changes' finale with guest, trombonist Michael Rörby joining the party. Russell
