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)

Livestream: Kai Hoffman - June 12

Kai Hoffman (vocals); Roger Lewin (keys)

Dropped in on Kai's Friday Night Function (my description) and heard Ain't Misbehavin'; A Nightingale Sang in (you know where!); Pennies From Heaven; The Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy From Company B as well as Luckiest Girl Alive, Lies Lies Lies and Lucky Lips from an album Kai Released back in 2015. The Cliff Richards' number may seem an unusual choice but Kai made it work.

One of the tracks on that album is Hot Rockin' Diva which, although I didn't hear it on Friday, pretty much sums up this lady.

She sings, she dances, she bounces around and introduces her cat - all the best people have cats - they're cool!
Lance.
