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)

Elaine Binney & The Jazz Rascals @ Durant Hall

Elaine Binney (vln), Peter Skeen (gtr/vcl), Keith Mills (bs), Jae Brooks (dms).
Remember the name - The Jazz Rascals. Rascals they may be but they have the potential to be the hottest band around.
This was their first ever gig and they used it to make a live recording which should be out in April.
I'm not going to elaborate too much - Ann Alex was observed making copious notes which I am sure will appear here shortly - instead I'll just say that Elaine and her Rascals are wonderful.
If you couldn't make it then you may have missed out on an event that could become part of North-East Jazz folklore.
And Bebop Spoken Here was there...
Lance.
