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)

CD Review: Peter Ehwald - Double Trouble Live.

Peter Ehwald (Tenor/Soprano); Robert Landfermann, Andreas Lang Jonas (Double Basses); Jonas Burgwinkel – Drums.
This live quartet album is somewhat different in that it features two double bass players (does that make it a quadruple bass?). I can’t say it adds to the overall listening experience to be honest, but I’m sure those present at the recording would have appreciated the novelty of the 8 strings. In the main this album is a vehicle for Ehwald’s compositions. His sax playing on both tenor and soprano is well supported by the double double bass players and I detected some very fine work by drummer Burgwinkel which I guess makes me a bit of a winkelpicker.  Ehwald is indeed a very fine player and in this format plays in a very free and uncompromising manner. Not easy listening but well worth a concentrated listen.
