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)

The Van Gelder Studio Organ (May 16)

Rudy Van Gelder recorded a vast number of musicians, releasing hundreds of albums in the process. John Coltrane, Miles Davis, Thelonious Monk and countless others booked studio time at the now historic New Jersey shrine. Now, in the age of the online gig, a rather tasty-looking live stream is in the offing. 

On Saturday (May15) four A-listers will be streaming across North America with a re-stream opportunity the next day (Sunday 16) for fans in Japan/Asia and Europe (including Britain). The Van Gelder Studio organ is being touted as the star of the show. Joey DeFrancesco is charged with the responsibility of doing justice to the instrument played by the likes of Ray CharlesJack McDuffJimmy McGriffShirley ScottDr Lonnie SmithJimmy Smith and Larry Young. Joining DeFranceso will be three star performers - Peter Bernstein (guitar), Billy Hart (drums) and special guest, saxophonist Houston Person. The quartet will be playing numbers associated with some of the classic organ albums recorded at the Van Gelder Studio. 

The European re-stream is the one jazz fans here in Britain will want to sign up to at the user-friendly time of 7:00pm on Sunday 16. There is a $15 booking fee and, if you book by the end of today (Sunday 9) you'll have access to a Zoom conversation between drummers Billy Hart and Marcus Gilmore. Book now at: www.vangelder.live.
