Bebop Spoken There

Jazz Esquires @ The Porthole.

Miles Watson (tpt/vcl); Terry Dalton (tmb); Tony Winder (sax/clt); Robin Douthwaite (gtr); Stan Nicholson (bs); Laurie Brown (dms/clt). Brian Lynam (hca).
Can't really say too much about today's session as I was in the bar with James Carr - see previous post.
However, despite being pianoless, they got a good sound on the opener - It Don't Mean a Thing -  and it did have that swing! 
I heard strains of Brian Lynam playing what may have been A White Sport Coat and a Pink Carnation! Don't mock - forget the words - it's a great tune!
One of my favourite LP's is Joe Newman's The Happy Cats - the above photo isn't the picture on the sleeve!
Lance.
PS: I won a bottle of vino in the raffle!

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.
