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)

We're really very modest but...

...I didn't think I should let this go by without bringing it to your attention. http://blog.uk.cision.com/2010/02/top-five-uk-jazz-blogs/ Lance and Co.

Modesty is not required in these circumstances!

I'd not come across Cision before - apparently it's a "a global media intelligence provider". I've decided I'll start keeping an eye on their blog as it seems to have quite a lot to say about the music industry.

Well I've lost count how many times I've said to Mr Lance Liddle just how much I think his style and memory and delivery entertains the global media intelligent jazz users. I can spot a Liddle script many beats before I start reading. It always begins with the title and I just know a surprise connection will follow. It's not reportage but more creative odes to music itself and their wonderful creators. I love good writing with the capacity to evoke the gig experience in your mind. There is also a sense of a continuing storyline regarding local musicians, so we kind of 'grow' and move with the music and peoples' careers over time. It's a lovely small touch. This list simply does not surprise me in the least. He also happens to be a remarkably friendly and thoroughly sincere human being, I am blessed to have received his warmth. Sarah

Thank you everyone but the important thing is yourselves and your comments. So please keep them coming on the other posts and build up this 'jazz family' we have become.
