Bebop Spoken There

They Said Goodbye to Brookmeyer.

There is a wonderful report of the memorial service held at St Peter's Church Manhattan on Doug Ramsay's famed blog Rifftides.
The report is by David Sherr who collates perfectly what must have been a moving experience for those remembering the great valve trombonist/pianist/composer/arranger. Bob Brookmeyer died Dec.15 last year aged 81.
Lance.
PS: I remember hearing Brookmeyer with Giuffre at Newcastle City Hall. The latter was riding high with his recording of The Train and the River from Jazz on a Summer's Day but this version was even better!

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.
