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)

Dom Pipkin: Saturday Piano Truth - June 20

Dom Pipkin (piano/vocal)

The Pipkin parlour appeared to have been transformed into a trendy disco with coloured lights everywhere - even on top of the Steinway! Well maybe it wasn't a Steinway but it was the same colour.

Dom was in good fettle singing and playing that good old barrel house, blues and boogie-woogie which, when skillfully blended, emerges as authentic N'awlins piano - or at least as  authentic as you're gonna get from a professor who hangs out nearer The Thames than the Mississippi.

In the right hands, you close your eyes and you are transported to Louisiana. Dom took us there tonight.

I didn't take notes, I just let the music wash over me like a high tide down on the levee. Enrico Tomasso who'd just finished his own Livestream wandered in - good to see musicians supporting each other.

You can catch Dom again on Wednesday night and next Saturday night.

PS: Facebook, which has been behaving itself of late, blotted its copybook and went into freeze mode so I missed the last ten minutes - naughty Facebook.
