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)

Mike Gilby Latest

With Hilary Gilby's permission I have posted the latest news on trumpet player Mike Gilby's failing health.
-----
"Please excuse me writing to you this way. Sadly it's to inform you of Mike's continued and worsening ill health. As you know he is now dependant on 24 hour nursing care. Last Wednesday (10th) he was rushed to North Tyneside Hospital in a coma, and near death. For the time being visiting is by close family only, as he is being barrier nursed. We are encouraged by the fact that he appears to be making some progress. I will let you know of any further developments.
Kindest regards,
Hilary, Michael, Scott and Zoe."
-----
All our thoughts are with Mike and Family.
Lance.
