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)

RIP Andy Hamilton

The sad news has reached me of the death of Jamaican born, Birmingham based saxophonist Andy Hamilton MBE.
An enigmatic figure who wasn't heard nationally as frequently as he deserved, I never had the pleasure of hearing him live although I do cherish the two CDs which feature him alongside, on various tracks, Jean Touissant, David Murray, Orphy Robinson, Jason Rebello - even Mick Hucknell - among others that show him to be easily holding his own next to those other jazz household names.
He continued his educational work up until recently.
Andy Hamilton left us on June 3.
He was 94.
Sadly missed.
Lance.
