Bebop Spoken There

Dave Holland: "Back then, one of my first gigs was with Wally Fawkes and Johnny Parker at the Crown and Anchor in Islington, playing music that went back to the days of King Oliver. And I've always enjoyed the joyousness of that music, and the sound of everybody fitting together beautifully, improvising together." - Jazzwise, August 2021.

A Sunday Service at Preservation Hall - June 20

Adrian Cox (clarinet, vocals)

Preacher Adrian Cox recalled making the first of several visits to Preservation Hall in New Orleans. The fact that the small room isn't air conditioned makes it all the more appealing! The venue and city in Louisiana, USA presented Cox with bountiful material for this afternoon's Sunday Service. Our live streamer offered a potted history of the venue and its many revivalist musicians, from George Lewis to the Humphreys. 

Our man's imperious clarinet playing was in evidence once more, allied to winning vocals. From Down in Honky Tonk Town to the tune every New Orleans/Dixieland band has in its pad, Ice Cream (I Scream, You Scream), the hour long sermon flew by. Vocal numbers included Tell Me Your Dreams (with snapping fingers and in-between lines chat with Cox's online congregation) and Oh, How I Miss You Tonight (referencing Willie Humphrey's clarinet playing). An online congregation numbering seventy plus tells a story, Adrian Cox has a message well worth hearing. More next week at one o'clock.
