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)

Tim Hegarty Quartet live streaming from Small's, NYC - Feb. 11

Tim Hegarty (tenor sax); Charlie Sigler (guitar); Dishan Harper (double bass); Winard Harper (drums)

Saxophonist Tim Hegarty has been on the New York scene for thirty years. An MA from Queen's College under the guidance of Jimmy Heath and Donald Byrd, gigs with Gil Evans and the Mingus Big Band, working with Dexter Gordon, Johnny Griffin, Carmen McRae and many others, Hegarty's cv is as good as any. This evening's set from Small's presented Hegarty's quartet which included drummer Winard Harper. 

Hegarty played tenor sax, and, as on previous sessions from the Greenwich Village venue, the horn player wasn't on a mic. No doubt this is fine if you're lucky enough to be sitting close up in the smallest of rooms, listening online is another matter! A couple of tunes by Jimmy Heath, Frank Wess' Once is Not Enough with guitarist Charlie Sigler swinging the blues, Sigler again on Larry Willis' To Wisdom, the Prize, this quartet gig was well worth catching. 

Ronnell Bright's Sweet Pumpkin was rudely interrupted by a bout of internet buffering. Service resumed with the great Winard Harper swiping brushes all over his compact kit with nephew Dishan Harper holding it down on bass. A cookin' Far Away Lands (comp. J. Heath) concluded an excellent set.
