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: Dancing trombones @ Sage Gateshead - Nov. 27

American trombonist Jason Holcomb is to premiere a new work at Sage Gateshead on Tuesday (Nov 27). A co-commissioned work for Eliot Smith Dance and the Royal British Legion Sacrification examines the conflict and human consequences of WWI.

Tyneside based Holcomb has travelled the world working on prestigious cruise ship engagements. For a number of years, the Idaho born musician (he studied music at the Lionel Hampton School of Music) was based in Las Vegas and had the privilege of participating in a recording session at the famous Capitol Records’ studios in Los Angeles and sharing a stage with Al Grey and Bill Watrous.


Sacrification is one of three dance pieces to be performed in Sage Two on Tuesday alongside works by choreographers Rosie Kay and Mathieu Geffre, and Eliot Smith, ESD’s Artistic Director. It remains to be seen - and heard - how much jazz will be in Holcomb’s commissioned piece which has been described as a work for ‘trombone ensemble and percussion’. It’s a fair bet that one or two familiar jazz faces will be in the line-up. Why not go along and support this regional jazz dance production? The ticket office telephone number at Sage Gateshead is 0191 443 4661.
