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)

What the Papers Say

 Four jazz mags on display at WH Smith's! Must be a record and, in the case of Jazzwise it is - a 10 track CD for free!

In the days of Fenwick's news stand five magazines were stocked - the four mentioned plus Jazz Journal!

Ah yes and, before then, there wuz, Crescendo, Jazz Monthly, Jazz News,Jazz News (Irish), various short-lived mags that offered cassettes and CDs. The Canadian Coda mag has fond memories for me. A northeast MP, who, at the moment, is a Lord - and a jazz fan - did off on a political jolly to Canada and, apart from sowing the seeds for some mega (ish) trade deals which may or may not have happenned way back in the 1970s, brought me back a copy of Canada's Coda magazine. A mag I bought several times afterwards, albeit usually on my occasional visits to London as I don't think it made Fenwicks' news stand.
Nevertheless, I'm indebted to that MP for bringing, in person, that mag to my attention.

Yes, Crescendo and, at about the same time, Straight No Chaser making seven titles in all plus the cover mount CD magazine series (the CDs regularly turn up in charity shops). What was it called?
