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)

Bertrand Tavernier (Round Midnight) dies at 79

Film director Bertrand Tavernier died today (Thursday). He had a long, distinguished career. Early film industry experience in the sixties with Jean-Luc Goddard and Jean-Pierre Melville paved the way for the Frenchman to direct films from the seventies onwards working with many stars of the silver screen. Round Midnight will be of interest to jazz fans. Starring Dexter Gordon with original music by Herbie Hancock, the 1986 award-winning film is well worth watching, not least to see a parade of jazz names on screen including Ron Carter, Billy Higgins, Freddie Hubbard, John McLaughlin, Pierre Michelot, Palle Mikkelborg, Wayne Shorter and Cedar Walton. A young Jacky Terrasson worked as a film extra. Bertrand Tavernier was 79. Russell
