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)

The Jazz Ambassadors (and others) One More Time, Once More

In regulation BBC-speak there’s ‘another chance to hear’ (a repeat, but welcome repeat) of Guy Barker’s ten part survey Jazz Junctions. Thursday’s first programme on Radio 2, 10:00pm, began with the Original Dixieland Jazz Band (catch up on iPlayer). The Craig Charles Funk and Soul Show (BBC 6 Music, today, Saturday, 6:00pm) features a Brian Auger session. The Hammond man recently played Sage Gateshead.  
Back in the day the US State Department deployed a secret weapon in the Middle East. A regiment of some of our greatest jazz musicians visited Syria and other areas of ‘strategic interest’. Dizzy, Louis, Brubeck and other jazz diplomats did what they were best known for and played jazz, jazz, jazz (better than war, war, war). In another repeat, Julian Joseph guides us through their story with Charlie Persip’s contribution a particularly illuminating listen (Radio 4, Tuesday at 4:00pm). That Reminds Me (BBC Radio 4 Extra, Tuesday, six o’clock) rewinds to 2001 to hear George Melly’s thoughts on jazz, art, angling and more.
In the early hours of Wednesday and Thursday (1:00am) on BBC 6 Music catch episodes 14 and 15 of the 52 part series The Story of Pop. The two programmes focus on the blues, first the African-American originators, then the British enthusiasts.
