This is a film about Bop (and involves the Adderley brothers)
I thought that several Forum regulars may like to see it.
That was great gord.
I was starting to think I was the only Diana fan in the Forum.
Good one Gord. He was one of the giants.
Here's a vocalist I first heard in the fifties. I liked what I heard back then but I only lately found out that
she had a very tragic end to her very short career.

Beverly Kenney was an excellent jazz singer, and a very tragic loss at 28.
(She'd have been 80 if she'd lived)
Have you tried Sophie Milman and Sacha Boutros?
If not I recommend them as being in the same category.
I checked out Sophie Millman and Sacha Boutros John and agree, they both have that 'snap your fingers on two and four' requirement!
I also enjoyed Gord's Lola Allbright recording of How High The Moon.
This one is a tribute to that great swinging drummer Jake Hanna.

It was interesting Colin. I met Jake once and he was real good fun to converse with. Full of witty quips. And of course he really swung that Herman Band.
One story told to me by a friend who attended a jazz festival where Jake was virtually the resident drummer and appeared with almost everybody,and he was introduced throughout the proceedings a such..."ladies and gentlemen the drummer with the trio is the greatest trio drummer ever,Jake Hanna!.. the greatest small group drummer Jake Hanna!..the greatest big band drummer ever, Jake Hanna!" Jake then the stood up and hollered out "I don't have to take this s**t from nobody!!"
The best Drummers are small groupe drummers the rest just bashers IMO
I donít want a signature any more
