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)

Ella & Dizzy @ The Proms tonight on BBC4

The Jazz Promenaders are in for a treat tonight - Roll Over Beethoven, make room for Ella and Diz.
Tonight's concert from the Royal Albert Hall is a tribute to Ella Fitzgerald and Dizzy Gillespie with Dianne Reeves [pictured] playing Ella and the amazing James Morrison the role of Dizzy. 
With this being the centennial for both it is fitting that such an accolade is accorded at such a prestigious event as The Proms. I hope it isn't watered down too much to accommodate the traditional Promgoer.
The down beat is at 8 pm on BBC4 so, Mister Paganini...

Dianne Reeves is excellent (imho) Will definitely record the Proms. As we're out listening to our songbird daughter at her gig.
