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 and the Strictly Smokin’ Big Band

In the unlikely event that you’re not at a gig tonight (all roads lead to 54 Pilgrim Street, Newcastle) there is, as the BBC would say, ‘another chance to hear’ the Ella Fitzgerald/Dizzy Gillespie Prom, first broadcast earlier this year on Radio 3. American singer Dianne Reeves and Australian multi-instrumentalist James Morrison are joined by the BBC Concert Orchestra in a programme of Duke Ellington, Thelonius Monk, Gershwin and many others. Tune to Radio 3 at 7:30. 
Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow, tonight’s Strictly Smokin’ Big Band’s gig at Hoochie Coochie is the place to be. Doors at Warren’s gaff open at seven o’clock with Michael Lamb’s super-charged big band hitting the stage at 8:30. The MU’s enduring mantra – Keep Music Live – applies this evening, record the Ella/Dizzy Prom and head to Hoochie Coochie, it’s the only game in town!
