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)

Johanna Graham Quartet CD Launch @ Pizza Express, Dean St., London Sunday May 25.

Earlier last month I gave a rave review to a début album from Cornwall based singer Johanna Graham -Review here.
Don't just take my word for it...
"We are delighted to introduce the Johanna Graham Quartet, Cornwall's best kept secret, to Dean Street for the launch of their début album 'Don't Let Me Be Lonely'. Expect creative and innovative interpretations of well known standards and stylish jazz renditions of some unexpected pop classics, alongside captivating, self penned new compositions." Pizza Express Jazz Club.

"A fine singer with a palpably individual style" Jazzwise Magazine. 
----- 
"Beautiful vocals" Chrissie Hynde.

Personally I can think of few better experiences than listening to Johanna Graham, enjoying a pizza and accompanying it all with a glass or two of Pinot Grigot .
Unfortunately, I'm nearly 300 miles away at present so I can't enjoy the live experience but, if you're down that way, please make the effort - it will be worth it. And any critics, bloggers etc who do make it, send me a link to your review.
Lance.
