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)

Miles Davis and Me by Edward Allan Faine

Author and Jazzicologist Edward Allan Faine, whose books Bebop Babies and The Best Gig in Town  were reviewed on BSH  (2014/15) also has a blog - Faine Books. His latest posting, Miles Davis and Me, tells the story of how, as a 20-year-old, he hung out at the Modern Jazz Club in Cleveland, Ohio, and of a particular night when the Miles Davis Sextet played there. It's a tremendous piece of writing, so evocative of the era. The description of the club, the city, and the actual  gig makes you feel you were there.  In some ways, you are there inasmuch as a number of the events can be related to your own experiences wherever you lived at the time.
You can read it on the link above or listen to the author narrate the story on a blogcast - listen here
Lance.
