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)

Keeping Jazz Live in Middlesbrough: Just Friends @ Dormans Club – April 5

Ian Bosworth (guitar); Richie Emmerson (tenor); Ted Pearce (keys); Alan Smith (bass); Ernie Jackson (drums) + Rod Millgate (keys/vocal).
Another successful guest band night was held at the Tees Hot Club  Dormans’  Jazz Night on April 5 with Just Friends and a surprise contribution by Rod Millgate on holiday from the Dordogne. 
Appropriately, the band started with a fine rendition of  Just Friends followed by Sonny Rollins’ Doxy and a number featuring Richie Emmerson playing a moving version of My Funny Valentine. After several more numbers, the first half was brought to a close with Rod Millgate singing Georgia on my Mind
Rod started the second half on keys with Stanley Turrentine’s Sugar then, with Ted back at the keys, the night continued with Killer Joe and several more numbers including Work Song with a fine vocal from Rod to an appreciative audience before ending the night with St. Thomas. The guest band nights, so far, have proved to be a success attracting a wider audience to the regular Jazz nights.

It was really good to see the guys again, especially when they let me do a few numbers. I especially enjoyed Richie's impromptu tenor solo in Work Song too. I had a great time, thanks to all. Best regards, Rod.
