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)

Mads Mathias - Be sure to catch him.

It was back in 2012 when ace Danish singer, Mads Mathias, released his debut CD Free Falling. For some reason or other, it was 2015 before it got reviewed on BSH. If you read the review you will realise it was well worth the wait and that a new star had been born. Since then I've heard little of Mathias apart from replaying the album many times.
Well, the good news is that he's once more in our midst.
Next weekend he's at the Royal Albert Hall as part of the Clare Teal hosted Prom 2017 -- Swing No End. This is at 1500 hrs on August 27 (live Radio 3?) and televised on BBC Four on Sept. 1 (1930 hrs.)
However, there's a cast of thousands so I doubt if Mads will get more than a couple of numbers.
Fortunately, the great Dane is also appearing in the north (as seen by the south) with a return trip to Seven Arts in Leeds on September 21 and the following day (22) at Scarborough Jazz Festival.
If you've got your fare and just a trifle to spare then don't miss either.
He's also on YouTube.
Lance.
