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)

Streaming Rico 'n' Brian - June 12

Rico Tomasso (trumpet); Brian Kellock (piano)

Another week, another in Rico Tomasso's Popup Louis series of live stream gigs. This evening Rico's tip jar-sharing buddy was none other than one of Scotland's finest, pianist Brian Kellock.

A meeting of minds this week...Tomasso and Kellock and Armstrong and Ellington. Duke's Black Butterfly to start. Rico revealed he first met Brian in Edinburgh, they went on to play duo gigs together and this evening's lockdown duo continued with another Louis-Duke recording, Duke's I'm Just a Lucky So and So. The sound of Brian's piano playing caught the ear of fellow Scot, and sometime Newcastle Black Swan jammer, Mr Martin Waugh with MW commenting Brian's sound was instantly recognisable. 


For Rico's mother - Someday Sweetheart with Brian's piano introduction setting up our host's fine trumpet playing. Mrs T no doubt approved, not least as the ending was one that Tomasso Snr perfected on clarinet!

One more number with this wonderful piano player, said Rico. Glancing at on-screen comments, a plug for the tip jar and tomorrow night's Dress Up Saturday set, then our duo took it out with Hoagy's Jubilee. Did Kellock steal the show with some tremendous playing on this one? Yeah, just about!
