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)

CD Review - Gabriele Poso: Roots of Soul.


Roots of Soul is a new album by Italian multi-instrumentalist/composer Gabriele Poso just released on German label INFRAcom!. It's described as "a summery cocktail of latin jazz, afro-jazz and soul" a description I find it difficult to disagree with. As well as being a percussionist, composer, producer, arranger and mixer Poso  also finds time to host an internet radio program - the Genuine Radio Show. On Roots of Soul he is joined by  vocal guests: Osunlade, Nailah Porter and Tanya Michelle who add distinctive vocals alongside the instrumentals which include Dizzy's Tin Tin Deo. Not a disc to make one listen to intently with furrowed brow but one to play at the more sophisticated barbecue or al fresco gathering - it won't upset the neighbours and may help you get to know them! VIDEO 1 VIDEO 2
