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)

Alan Glen Trio @ The Chilli

Alan Glen (pno), John Pope (bs), Mike Humble (dms).
Dave Weisser (tpt/flug/vcl), Barrie Ascroft (pno), Jim Crinson (bs), Rob Bates (dms).
Another splendid set from the trio. David Carnegie was unable to make the gig so tonight we had Mike Humble on drums and he did the business but good.
As ever, Alan played a choice selection of standards and an original - She Walks Into Mine - a lovely ballad with an identity of its own.
I Hear a Rhapsody, You'd Be So Nice To Come Home To, Like Someone in Love, Falling in Love With Love, What is This Thing Called Love, When I Fall in Love and Too Close For Comfort.
Piano playing at its best, first class bass playing and sympathetic drumming.
Mike and Alan, in fact, had worked together many times over the years so it wasn't long before they settled into each other's groove.
John Pope continues to grow in stature as a bassist and tonight he was quite amazing.
Classy vocalist Brenda Sokell was in the audience but, despite the lack of sitters in, didn't get a chance to sing.
Hopefully some other spring.
Earlier, the Take It to The Bridge Workshop put Airegin, The Chant, Au Privave and a few more under the musical microscope.
Lance.
