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)

Preview: A Sage Sunday Postmodern Jukebox

This Sunday, February 18, Sage One is going to be full to the rafters for the return visit of Scott Bradlee’s Postmodern Jukebox. A viral internet sensation, Bradlee’s skillful use of social media platforms to promote his arrangements of present-day pop tunes, often in a ragtime or twenties’ jazz age style, has won him literally millions of fans. YouTube hits can be counted in their many tens of millions as the New Jersey-raised pianist and arranger tours the world playing to capacity audiences entranced by his shows which are presented, and viewed, through a sepia-tinted lens.


A twelve-year-old Bradlee was captivated by Rhapsody in Blue. He would later go on to play jazz piano in New York and work in off-Broadway theatre productions. Postmodern Jukebox uses the talents of Bradlee’s many musical associates. One project to the next, one tour to the next, Scott Bradlee employs a bewildering number of musicians and at Sage Gateshead on Sunday (Feb 18) the roll call is likely to include new faces, new names, but the experience will be every bit as good as last time. From All About That (Upright) Bass to a ragtime version of Tainted Love to R.E.M.’s Shiny Happy People performed as a 1940s swing number, this is one show you won’t want to miss.
