Bebop Spoken There

John Tynan: "Go ahead, call me reactionary. I happen to object to the musical nonsense being peddled in the name of jazz by John Coltrane and his acolyte Eric Dolphy." - (Downbeat November 22, 1961).

-----

McCoy Tyner: "If anyone want to know how the three of us - Elvin, Jimmy and me - felt about John [Coltrane], listen to the music and you can hear the love and respect we had for each other. The music can really speak more than any of us." - (Melody Maker, August 19, 1967).

CD/Download review. The Matt Anderson Quartet.

Matt Anderson – Tenor, Aubin Vanns – Guitar, John Marley – Bass, Sam Gardner – Drums.
Some tasty playing by this young Leeds Based group. Leeds seems to be, if not the centre of the jazz universe, pretty close to it judging by the number of skilled musicians that have emerged from Leeds College of Music in recent years.
This CD/Download is a fine example of where it's at - The Matt Anderson Quartet.
It's contemporary, original, yet still based on those vital ingredients -harmony, melody and rhythm all knit sympathetically together.
The quartet, who are beginning to receive well deserved and wider recognition, will open up the Sunday afternoon session at this year's Scarborough Jazz Festival with a specially commisioned work Songs of the Ridings.
Recommended.

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.
