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)

Lance I know, I know, your total was a moving target, and at the time when I wrote that bit of the newsletter there were, Scout's Honour, only eleven pieces there.

I will put in an amendment next week - but the number will probably have risen again (?). I haven't read them all, but I did think Ann Alex's piece was just great! But all in all fantastic work and I'm sure Ros R and Gaynor will be thanking you for such incredible support !

Lance said...

I appreciate that but an amendment isn't necessary. As you say it is a moving target and there are probably another two reviews out there.
Are you coming up to Newcastle next weekend?

The LondonJazz site said...

No Manchester Friday 12, Oxford Sunday 14, Leeds Monday 15, thereafter just London - oh and Bremen!

How much coverage did GIJF get in the national press? I don't think The Guardian reviewed any of it....
