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)

Homage to Clifford Brown

Scanning through some Jazz Monthly magazines from the 1950s I encountered this poem by one F.E. Flemen. Flemen, you may recall, was the poet whose works were read by Ralph Watson at the June 1958 poetry and jazz session that Maurice Summerfield referred to a few days ago.
This poem, Homage to Clifford Brown, appeared in the January 1959 edition of Jazz Monthly. I wonder if it was one of the poems read at the June 25 session?*

*Clifford Brown was killed in a car crash on June 26, 1956. Almost two years to the day prior to the session.
