Bebop Spoken There
Bud Freeman: "I was in the hospital just two weeks--I couldn't bear being there. It seems to me that all the dead people in the world are not in their graves. So I went home" - (Down Beat May 16 1968).
Dan Wilensky: “When I was 19, I explored the highways and byways of the United States with “Brother” Jack McDuff in a small, sometimes rickety white truck in need of a paint job and a new muffler, helped lift his B-3 and Leslie out of said blundermobile, and after a five-hour gig, pocked $60…” – (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.
