Bebop Spoken There

Jennifer Wharton: "People forget that the trombone is so glorious. It can be like going to church, or getting ready for battle. It can be a lot of things....For a longtime I was the only female trombonist in New York," - (DownBeat May 2021)

Slim Gaillard on Norman Granz

"When I first met Norman Granz he was broke; in fact he was broke more often than the tenth commandment". (Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's wife). Back in the '80s Slim gave a memorable concert at the Corner House. Singing, playing guitar and piano; for the latter instrument he hit the keys with the knuckle side of his amazingly long fingers.
As can be seen from the photo he was not without a sartorial presence.

I was at that Slim Gaillard concert in the 80's at the Corner HOuse; in fact, I did the P.A. sound, and in fact have a good recollection of the gig! Lance see Dave next Wednesday @ Chilli gig to learn more!
