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)

Tomasso and Thomas livestreaming - June 19.

Enrico Tomasso (trumpet/vocal); Thomas "Spats" Langham (guitar/banjo/vocal).

Stream two - it's a busy night for me! Say When opened with a vocal from Spats and a hot chorus from Rico. East St. Louis Toodle-oo had some fine plungering by Rico on top of Spats' banjoing. Louise was a natural choice as it seems every girl in Rico's family is a Louise and we had the added bonus of a Rico vocal.

A pint of Owd Rodger (7.4%) to keep Rico's chops lubricated before they rounded things off with an Irving Berlin number - When the Folks High Up Do the Mean Lowdown. Bing sang it in a film and Spats sang it here as well as giving some virtuoso banjo playing. Rico too pitched in with his vocal chords as well as some belting trumpet.

Back tomorrow night at 7:00.
