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)

Jazz Co-op @ The Globe: Folk Meets Jazz: August 6

All credit to those of us who were present: there weren’t a lot of people, because of holidays and other events, but we all managed to make interesting music and have a good time. It would have been ideal to have more jazz instrumentalists, so all ye jazzers out there, why not come along to the next Jazz Meets Folk, on Thursday September 3, 8pm?

Ian Forbes, when he wasn’t drumming for other people’s songs, became a pop singer for the night, singing along to his own backing tracks, songs such as Hi Ho Silver Lining. Minnie Fraser did sterling stuff with her fiddle (NB it’s never called a violin in folk music) with Ashokan Farewell and pleasing renditions of songs including John Anderson and Green Grow The Rushes O.  That last song is from a Robert Burns poem.  Bill played spoons (ie ordinary household spoons used as percussion) and did Irish songs; Eva sang Every Time You Say Goodbye and other jazz sings; Sheila did 2 connected songs about the moon, Blue Moon and Blue Moon Of Kentucky. I seem to remember singing a couple of blues numbers myself, and everyone joining in an Americana song with drums, spoons, fiddle and a tambourine which just happened to be lying around on the piano.
