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)

Preview: Five Blind Boys of Alabama @ Sage Gateshead May 25.

This Sunday (May. 25) Sage Gateshead offers a rare treat in the form of a concert by the legendary Five Blind Boys of Alabama.
The five time Grammy Award winning gospel group have been going for 70 years and still include two original members - Jimmy Carter and Clarence Fountain although the latter may be missing this tour due to ill-health.
Throughout the decades their music has always kept up with trends incorporating material by, or working with, artists such as Bob Dylan, Stevie Wonder, Prince, Les McCann, Preservation Hall, the Hot 8 Brass Band and many many more.
Described elsewhere as a roof-raising experience, I doubt anyone will argue!
More biographical info here.
Listen to their version of Way down in the Hole.
Booking details.
Lance.
