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)

Archive quotes.

Paul Edis: Lockdown Live #13 - June 12

Paul Edis (piano/vocals).

Start off each day with a song seems to be Paul's current modus operandi. This week it was Just Friends followed by a Kenny Wheeler number, Everybody's Song But my Own, which, despite the title, was a non-vocal delight.

Koto Song, by Brubeck caught the mood of the composer's intentions - this was as Japanese as Sushi and much tastier.

Tony Eales chipped in with a request as he invariably does. This week it was for Things Ain't What They Used to be - sure ain't!

Francis Tulip placed an order for April in Paris which was duly delivered complete with a quote from I'll Remember April - it was a popular month with songwriters!

A couple of Paul originals - I Wish I Was a Monk and  Will o' the Wisp

Moonglow reminded me to dig out my Moonlight Sinatra album. By coincidence, the film Picnic was on TV later and it featured Moonglow as part of the theme tune.

Jitterbug Waltz from the pen of Fats was given suitably reverential treatment and Blame it on my Youth is high up on my list of favourite ballads and the quote from Young at Heart did no damage at all.

The show closed with a request from Tony Roberts for Dolphin Dance.

Another fantastic Friday - roll on next week!
Lance
