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: The Tulip/Metcalf Quintet @ Roobarb and Custard, Seaham. Sept. 8 (9pm)

This special, one-off group has come together as part of a preview evening for an 'Art Exhibition of paintings and sculptures inspired by the Heritage Coast.' 
Local artist Ken Lockwood saw the Francis Tulip Quartet at the Empty Shop and Ushaw and was blown away.
With Michael and Matthew heading back to the capitals of the UK and Massachusetts respectively, Francis asked James Metcalf - Early Bird and Jambone alumni, with a roving/exploratory ear for Jazz - to assemble the cream of the young guns from around the North East for an evening of standards, cutting-edge jazz, funk and maybe an original or two.
Steve T.
The exhibition is at the Spectrum Business Park, 2 Lighthouse View, Dawdon, SR7 7PR and is open for public viewing from Sept. 9 -16 between 10am and 4:30pm.
