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)

Death of a Legend. Bert Weedon R.I.P.

If I had a pound for every copy of Bert Weedon's Play in a Day guitar tutor I sold when working in a music shop I'd be a millionaire twice over. In those days it was the guitar tutor and many famous names started from there.
Although known for his early Shadows/Duane Eddy type numbers he was no mean jazzer either and could hold his own in any situation.
Bert Weedon died yesterday (April 19) aged 91.
R.I.P.
Obituary.
Lance.
