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)

Abbie Finn to top the bill at Billy's!

In compiling a preview of this year's Newcastle Jazz Festival (Aug 13-16) a top-of-the-bill gig featuring the Abbie Finn Trio somehow or other failed to get a mention. This could be due to the writer's incompetence or incompetence fuelled by several bottles of McEwan's Champion Ale (7.3% ABV, Your Honour). 

In an attempt to make amends for this omission, please make a note of the date, time and venue...Sunday 16 August, four o'clock at Billy Bootlegger's, Nelson St, Newcastle. It's a free admission gig (as are all gigs at Billy's), it's a one hour special featuring the fabulous Abbie Finn Trio (Abbie, drums, Harry Keeble, tenor sax, Paul Grainger, bass) which will give you an hour or so to amble round to the Tyneside Cinema to watch Geordie Jazz Man at six o'clock.
