Bebop Spoken There
Sun Ra: "If any force from outer space were to attack this planet they'd do it with vibrations. My music counteracts these vibrations" - (Down Beat June 13 1968).
John Scofield: “Gary Burton gave me Jim’s phone number. I went to Jim’s apartment and took a lesson from him, and we stayed in touch from then on. Jim [Hall] was it for me. He was my role model. He still is.” – (Down Beat August 2014).

About this blog - contact details.
Not a very original title, I know; not even an accurate one as my taste, whilst centred around the music of Bird and Diz, extends in many directions and I listen to everything from King Oliver to Chick Corea and beyond. Not forgetting the Great American Songbook the contents of which has provided the inspiration for much great jazz and quality popular singing for round about a century.
The idea of this blog is for you to share your thoughts and pass on your comments on discs, gigs, jazz - music in general. If you've been to a gig/concert or heard a CD that knocked you sideways please share your views with us. Tell us about your favourites, your memories, your dislikes.
