Bebop Spoken There

Tony Williams: "I said, 'Miles, I mean Mr. Davis, can I sit in with your band?' Miles said, 'Go back, sit down, and listen'. So that was the first time I met Miles ." – (Down Beat, May 1989).

CD/Download review. The Matt Anderson Quartet.

Matt Anderson – Tenor, Aubin Vanns – Guitar, John Marley – Bass, Sam Gardner – Drums.
Some tasty playing by this young Leeds Based group. Leeds seems to be, if not the centre of the jazz universe, pretty close to it judging by the number of skilled musicians that have emerged from Leeds College of Music in recent years.
This CD/Download is a fine example of where it's at - The Matt Anderson Quartet.
It's contemporary, original, yet still based on those vital ingredients -harmony, melody and rhythm all knit sympathetically together.
The quartet, who are beginning to receive well deserved and wider recognition, will open up the Sunday afternoon session at this year's Scarborough Jazz Festival with a specially commisioned work Songs of the Ridings.
Recommended.

About this blog - contact details.

Bebop Spoken Here -- Here, being the north-east of England -- centred in the blues heartland of Newcastle and reaching down to the Tees Delta and looking upwards to the Land of the Kilt.
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.
