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)

A couple of exciting livestreams coming up! - One in London and one in Newcastle

Tomorrow night (March 26) at 8:00pm, two musicians who are much-loved and respected in the north east even though they now ply their wares in London play a duo set live from the Rokit Studios situated in the capital. 

Chester-le-Street pianist Paul Edis and Greek saxman Vasilis Xenopoulos have formed a musical bond over the years that surfaces when they get together in a quartet or, as is the case on Friday, a duo.

The one hour stream will feature the music of Harold Arlen which gives them plenty to choose from. Details and booking here.

Bassist Mick Shoulder and guitarist Mark Williams, two musicians who were frequently a part of Edis' groups on Tyneside, are now themselves involved in a livestream as part of the unmissable Sunday Night @ The Globe sessions organised by the Jazz Co-op. Mick, whose birthday it is today (Happy Birthday Mick) and Mark are joined by drummer John Bradford in a new band called, maybe a tad unimaginatively, Bradford/Shoulder/Williams. The name may be unimaginative but the music certainly isn't!

I've heard some tracks they've recorded and I'll be at the front of the queue on Sunday (March 28) eager to here them live (on-line).  Details and booking here.

It's difficult coming up with this name business. I wanted the Heath Robinson Trio but they wouldn't let me.
