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)

If I Were a Painter by Elftet
















(Review by Lance)
Elftet, an 11 piece led by 21-year-old vibist Jonny Mansfield are releasing an evocative video cover of a Norah Jones'  number sung by Ella Hohnen Ford. It compares well with the original and the artwork by Laura Armstrong is stunning too!
Mansfield and the band, which is one of  the most exciting new young bands to appear on the [unfortunately] southern scene, are currently organising a  crowdfunding appeal to launch their first album which will feature Gareth Lochrane and Chris Potter. To learn more and how you can help,
