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)

Wednesday Night National Youth Jazz Collective Livestream - June 10

Great livestream with Issie Barratt, Mark Lockheart and Nikki Iles talking about the National Youth Jazz Collective.

Issie poses the questions and Nikki and Mark talk about how they got into playing jazz which is quite fascinating particularly as, in their younger days, there wasn't any formal jazz education. They got it from sitting in and playing along to records which, is how most people did in the earlier years.

As the stream gains momentum they talk about composition and, in fact, many things - apart from sealing wax and kings.

Finally, to round off a very enjoyable and informative hour, Nikki was joined by Imogen (second name?) who sang a delightful version of Social Call - on the strength of this I guess it won't be long before the whole world knows her second name!
