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)

Prom 59 - The Broadway sound.

After missing out on Seth McFarlane at Ronnie's on Thursday I decided to watch tonight's Prom which featured, among others, Seth with John Wilson's Orchestra. Hearing Seth backed by the Geordie André Rieu is somewhat different to hearing him backed by the Ronnie Scott Jazz Orchestra - I wish! Nevertheless, he is a man for all seasons and he coped well on Sue Me from Guys and Dolls as well as the other numbers. A few jazzmen kicking around the orchestra. Matt Skelton on drums and I think that could have been Mark Nightingale among the trombones. Away from Seth, I liked Anna Jane Casey's Don't Rain on My Parade. AJC also led the team of dancers in the encore which was a splendid tap routine.
It's good to see The Proms expanding its horizons - the NYJO and Martin Taylor's Spirit of Django concerts were excellent. 
Tonight wasn't a jazz night but there were some nice moments for those of us who believe a song doesn't have to be decimated into a hundred choruses to be enjoyed! Personally I enjoy both the decimated and pre-decimated versions of the popular song.
Lance.
