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)

Budtones @ Queen's Hall, Hexham. April 12.

Stuart Findon (ten), Fiona Littlewood (vcl/ten), Tim Knowles (gtr), Jim Crinson (bass), Harley Johnson (keys) and George Hitton (dms),
Many many thanks "Buds" for last night's gig. It was wonderful - you were sounding edgy and relaxed at the same time - full of great surprises. 
The drum 4's were outstanding and we really enjoyed hearing Harley for the first time - doing seemingly impossible things with time, and really exploring the cracks between the chords.

This one will keep us grinning for a good long time.
