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)

“2011 - a golden age for jazz?” - A Yorkshire view.

Why? There is so much more jazz going on than there has ever been, so many venues, bands, talented musicians in the North regions; in Leeds for example (besides us at Seven Arts) you have the Wardrobe, Spinoff, Assembly Rooms, Sela Bar, + new ventures at the Grove, Heart etc.
In Yorkshire you have fantastic clubs/festivals in Wakefield, Grimsby, Boston Spa, Scarborough, Bradford, Sheffield, Huddersfield, Hull, York, Hebden Bridge, Marsden to name only some. And what of all those new big bands that have burst on the scene?
The younger generation of baton wavers - James Hamilton, Kim Macari, Tommy Evans, Colin Byrne, the “veterans” Tony Faulkner and Ronnie Bottomley with their new big bands plus the youth bands such as the Leeds Jazz Rock Orchestra directed by Brendan Duffy and the Garforth Jazz Rock Orchestra directed by Dave Evans. And that is before you look at the community big bands like the North Leeds Jazz Orchestra and the Mike Booth Big Band (blog suggestion: “Are the Big Bands back?”…..) Anyway we run Seven Jazz at Seven Arts in Chapel Allerton, Leeds and are in our fourth year now – it is a really friendly venue with good acoustics, food, drink and ambiance. This autumn we are pretty busy - 25 concerts (on Thursday evenings and Sunday afternoons) 15 workshops (on Fridays and Saturdays) and 3 jam sessions. Seven Jazz is run by voluntary promoters, our strapline is “quality accessible jazz”.
