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)

RIP Barbara Carroll

It has to be said that singers are hanging on in there a little longer these days. I know Al only made it to 76, which had me looking over my shoulder, but I'm not a singer. However, Buddy Greco was and he departed at 90. As was Barbara Carroll and the singer/pianist made it to 92. I never got to hear her live, or even pick up an album but I knew the regard in which she was held amongst her peers.
Listening here, I know now what  I've been missing from a woman who was both a singer and a pianist and a Sondheim interpreter.
Barbara died on Sunday, February 12 aged 92.
Sadly missed - a star.
Obituary.
In a Sentimental Mood.
Lance.

Me neither so I'll remove YouTube link. All Barbara Carroll links seem to have been blocked.

I had a look on YouTube, lots of good stuff of hers there. I particularly loved, "In a sentimental mood"
