Bebop Spoken There
Billie Holiday: “I hate straight singing. I have to change a tune to my own way of doing it. That's all I know.” – (Down Beat November 1, 1939).
Bunny Berigan: “We know that there are plenty of swing fans in the country wanting it--and we propose to give it [swing] to them.” – (Down Beat May, 1938).

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.
