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 Sunday Service: the Music of Jelly Roll Morton - Feb. 21

Adrian Cox (clarinet, vocals)

Last night's session at Kansas Smitty's featured Adrian Cox playing the music of Baby Dodds, this afternoon our clarinetist turned his attention to Jelly Roll Morton. Once again, Cox took the opportunity to live stream from Toulouse Lautrec. 

The Wolverine Blues featured last night and again at one o'clock today. Cox can holler a blues when the mood takes him, at ten past the hour it took him, cue Buddy Bolden's Blues. A Morton rag, Frog-I-More, illustrated Morton's and Cox's versatility. From a 1926 recording, The Pearls, a request for Black Bottom Stomp, another request, Winin' Boy Blues with vocals. Tune after tune, Cox convinces every time. Time for one more, again, a request, Don't You Leave Me Here with more of Cox's winning vocals. Next week it's the music of Edmond Hall.
