Bebop Spoken There

Charlie Musselwhite: "I used to see these posters in the windows of the [Chicago] blues clubs advertising Elmore James and Muddy Waters which knocked me out. I was making a note of the addresses and at night I'd go back and listen to the blues until 4-5 in the morning." - (Blues Matters! Aug/Sep 2021)

Nicolas Meier pottering around in his shed with Joe Henderson - May 27

Switzerland's Nicolas Meier, long-since resident in England, has been live streaming from his garden shed on a regular basis. This afternoon at two o'clock, Meier played the first of two sets in the company of tenor saxophonist Kelvin Christian and bassist Marianne Windham. As the sun streamed in through the window, Meier's ad hoc trio kicked off a Joe Henderson set with Isotope

All three musicians were in the guitarist's 'Garden Studio' shed but, for some reason, Meier was seen in a split-screen arrangement, Christian and Windham to the right of the screen, Meier to the left. Perhaps it was the camera set-up, perhaps a matter of social-distancing. Whatever the reason, the trio hit it off, tenor man Christian the Henderson disciple, Meier happy to accommodate. From the jam session staple Recorda Me to Black Narcissus to the set closing On a Clear Day, solos and occasional fours were traded in a non-competitive manner, nods and smiles the order of the day. A second set would follow at five o'clock. Russell.
