Bebop Spoken There
Gregg Field: "If I play an aggressive fill, he [Sinatra] might look back with a huge grin on his face. But if we don't do something right, we get the ray, and his ray makes Benny Goodman's ray look like Mother Theresa's ''- (Down Beat June 1995).
Clifford Brown: "Club owners hire stars, but try to save money by putting in a local rhythm section. If these new men are weak musically, they hurt the star's reputation too." - (Down Beat May4, 1955).

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.
