Swing it!


These two guys from Southern America played the streets of Bergen a couple of weeks ago. They told me they were very sorry that their bass was not working properly, so the music was not as fine as it should be. However, it was more than good enough for me!


The guy on vibes made me think of Lionel Hampton (whom I've heard in concert).


And Benny Goodman was not the only one who could play the clarinet!
My feet started tapping.

Have nice Week-End!

They must have been darn good to make you think of Hampton and Goodman. Interesting sculpture behind them...

Some of these street entertainers are better than we get on stage my friend, I always love a swing band-group.

Tøft! Det er morsomt å høre på gode gatemusikanter!

Oh, I do love street music, especially Caribbean or South American music. Lovely!

Vibes make the coolest sound, they are so appropriate for Jazz. Nice candid's.

Of course they're gonna hear all that's missing without the bass player, but like you, I'm sure I'd never notice if they hadn't made a point of it. Glad it was good.

Sounds like it was a treat to hear the music. And it's a treat to see these photos.

Nice sunshine! And with your main actors it does not look at all how I imagine Norway.

I love this photo with the clock and the mountain in the back. What is the story of the relief directly behind the piano player? Very intriguing with the ships and all..

Ha ha jeg har latterkrampe!! ikke av bildene for de var jo så flotte og fortellende, men det var noe med den `grilldressen` som var litt malplassert på en måte... som det er en smittsom klesstil når en entrer dette lander :-)
