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)

Eric Burdon: Rock and Roll - Animal


Watching last night's Eric Burdon programme on BBC4 reminded me of the evening of Sept. 6, 2016, at the old Jazz Café (now the Prohibition Bar) when Burdon's band sans Eric turned up at the jam session. It was quite a night and it was good to see the very same guys on film.

Pictured l-r they are: Ruben Salinas; Davey Allen; Justin Andres; Johnzo West; Dustin Koester; Evan Mackey.

Apart from that it was also good to see the old black and white footage of The Animals in New York and to hear his thoughts on Alan Price!

However, time has played tricks with Burdon's memory - Jack Teagarden didn't play with Louis Armstrong at Newcastle City Hall - it was Trummy Young. It was, in fact, Earl Hines that Teagarden toured with.
Nevertheless, an interesting insight into a singer who began his career in the old Newcastle Jazz Club.
