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)

The familiar, the not so familiar and the local on BBC Radio 3

This weekend's jazz offering on Radio 3 ranges from a lockdown set by South African pianist Nduduzo Makhathini (pictured) who made a stunning impact on the recent UNESCO International Jazz Day live stream, Tyneside's Mariam Rezaei and your regular appointment with Alyn Shipton

Makhathini is featured on Saturday's J to Z (Radio 3, 5:00pm) as is Art Themen who selects tracks which were an inspiration to him. Gateshead's turntabalist Rezaei discusses her work on Corey Mwamba's Freeness (midnight Saturday) and on Sunday afternoon at four o'clock Alyn Shipton plays listeners' requests - including Errol Garner, Thelonious Monk, Ike Quebec and Buddy Rich - on Jazz Record Requests
