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)

Glasgow and Edinburgh Vote 'Yes' For Jazz!

Bridge Music, the organisation that promotes jazz in the Jazz Bar in Edinburgh and Glasgow Art Club, has announced a full programme for September and October.
New York-based pianist John Colianni’s (pictured right) big swinging quartet leads a stylistically varied September menu in both venues (Edinburgh, Wed 3 and Glasgow, Thu 4), followed by drummer Tom Bancroft’s new experimental project, Vincent with Japanese pianist Satoko Fujii and bassist Una McGlone (10th and 11th). Scottish National Jazz Orchestra stalwarts, trumpeter Tom MacNiven and trombonist Phil O’Malley front their Blue Note-styled quintet (17th and 18th). Polish guitarist Przemyslaw Straczek brings his international quartet to Scotland for the first time (24th and 25th) and drummer Ollie Howell slots in an extra Bridge Music gig with his quintet at the Edinburgh venue on Sunday September 21).
October sees guitarist Jim Mullen return to home ground (Edinburgh, Wed 1 and Glasgow Thu 2) with his quartet. Then, having premiered his double big band commission Pro-Am in late July, saxophonist Paul Towndrow gets a bit more compact with his Organ Trio (8th and 9th). Another Glasgow based saxophonist, Brian Molley (pictured left) continues to spread the word of his debut album, Clock (15th and 16th) and Yorkshire’s Eyes Shut Tight and Scottish horn quartet Brass Jaw share the next midweek slots, with the former in Edinburgh (22nd) and the latter in Glasgow (23rd). Guitarist Nigel Price’s Organ Trio completes the line-up with gigs in Edinburgh (29th) and Glasgow (30th) as part of their extensive autumn UK tour.
