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)

Dan Burnett; Watch Party - June 16

Dan Burnett (piano.vocals).

Jim Simpson of Big Bear Music launched this watch party featuring a pianist who is better than your average bluesman and more diverse with his material giving us a pleasing mix of Ray Charles, Bob Dylan as well as some originals and classics such as Route 66, Unchain my Heart and Hallelujah I Just Love Her So.


To add to the interest, by the wonders of voice recognition we had the words printed across the screen as they were sung and spoken except that we didn't quite get all of them and sometimes what was said/sung sometimes made for quite hilarious translations. Ray Charles, for example, came up as Rachel's!

However, that is by the by, the piano playing was great and the voice suited to the idiom.

If you missed it, the good news is that, over in Birmingham (not the one in Alabama), Tuesday is Bluesday so look in next week.
Lance.
PS: And, you gotta believe me, Facebook did as it was told and the picture didn't freeze - not even once!
