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)

World Service Project No. 4 w. Tribraco.

Led by pianist Dave Morecroft, London-based WorldService Project’s combination of lyricism with burning intensity, unruly progressions and flowing melodic phrases has quickly brought them to the forefront of the UK scene, including upcoming Jazz in the Round in London end of April and representing UK at recent 12 Points festival in Porto.
match & fuse is a series of joint adventures in music, initiated by WorldService Project, with bands from across Europe. Based around a residency at the Vortex in London, the bands tour the UK, followed by a return tour of the European country, and the release of a limited edition CD. Each gig sees a set by each band, finishing with a 2-band mash-up.
After the wild ride of match no. 1 with SynKoke through Norway & UK in September, match no. 2 with Berlin trio, Schulbus, in November, match 3 with Ireland’s RedivideR in January….. Match no. 4 is set to go off.
Tribraco formed in Rome in 2004, by Lorenzo Tarducci (guitar, loop machine) with Valerio Lucenti (bass), Tommaso Moretti (drums), Dario Cesarini (guitar, loop machine, effects). Like tight-rope walkers, these musicians run a fine balance between the structured composition and free improvisation, syncopated and pressing rhythms…which they describe as psycho jazz rock. They frequently work with actors, dancers and video makers, in live performance, audiovisual concept and music for films and theatres.
The tour starts tomorrow (April 11) in Basingstoke - for full details visit the Match and Fuse website.
Lance.
