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)

You Can't Keep a Good Man Down - More on Bobby Carr.

I am James Carr, (son of the late Bobby Carr - pictured left).
Thank you so much for the interest shown in my dad's musical career and life. I googled Bobby Carr trumpet and discovered the wonderful tributes and comments on my dad on the Bebop Spoken Here site.
I am now 43 but was only 10 when Bobby died in March 1979. I remember my dad vividly and always knew he was top of his game with his trumpet.
I still have lots of memories and photos of Bobby and can post you some copies if you wanted me too. He was a wonderful dad and person and I have missed him every day since the 33 years since his passing.
Although I didn't inherit his musical skill for instruments, I have a huge love of rock music and a huge cd collection.
I would love to swap stories and information with you or anyone else on Bobby and in particular would love to speak to Cormac Loane who's tribute to my dad made me smile and laugh as yes I remember his green Ford Capri/ heavy consumption of brown ale/ sense of humour/Hoffbrau House gig outfit of Lederhosen, which I used to find hysterical!
I have some of my dads old memorabilia like his Melody Maker young musician of the year awards from the 1950s and his old Green Howards army scarf.
As well as myself Bobby had a daughter Jane who is 48 and married to Ronnie with 2 teenage daughters Anna (15) and Kate(13).
James Carr.
