Bebop Spoken There

Peter Vacher: “The Hopbine [public house] is a Tesco Express now, having been reinvented successively as Desi Dons, Bootsy Brogans, the Dog and Duck and, before that, the Chequered Flag.” – (Jazzwise October 2017)

Kyle Eastwood: “Naturally I listened to pop music when I was a kid – I’d spend two hours a day hearing it on the school bus! – but the very first music I heard in the house and the first concerts I went to were jazz.” – (Jazzwise October 2017)

CD Review: Matthieu Marthouret Bounce Trio - Small Streams ... Big Rivers

Matthieu Marthouret (org/keys); Toine Thys (ten); Gautier Garrigue (dms).
(Review by Lance).
A classic organ trio capable of laying down a groove without being stuck in a rut. The format may at times bring to mind past organ masters such as Shirley Scott, McDuff, McGriff or Wild Bill Davis but the end product is a few decades further down the line and more in keeping with the jazz of today (but fortunately not tomorrow!)
It's funky, it's danceable and it's very listenable.
Musicians these days are rarely out and out specialists, usually finding something in whatever genre they're called upon to perform. In Marthouret we have a musician passionate about music in its many guises be it classical; jazz; rock or traditional French folk. On this disc his jazz hat is firmly fixed alongside his composer's coat (he wrote 5 of the pieces.)
Tenorman Thys chipped in with a couple of compositions as well as blowing angular lines that incorporate the full range of the horn - and beyond!
Garrigue, a composer in his own right although not represented as such on this disc provides the drive that propels this collection along.Chapeaux!

Matthieu Marthouret Bounce Trio - Small Streams ... Big Rivers is due for release by Bartok Records on September 22.

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.
