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)

Guitarists - Nine Albums and a DVD by Roly

The posts on favourite jazz guitar albums prompted to me look through my collection and pick out some favourites of mine. Not all led by a guitarist, but where I love the album and the guitarist’s contribution.

Wes Montgomery/Johnny GriffinFull House (Live at Tsubo). With the Miles rhythm section. Wonderful live session. Electric.

Dave Cliff + Brian Lemon TrioBut Beautiful. With Allan Ganley, Dave Green. Beautiful playing from everyone.

George Barnes/Ruby Braff QuartetThe Best I’ve Heard. This album inspired me to take up jazz guitar.

Jim Hall TrioCircles. Jim at his finest.

John ScofieldTime on my Hands. My favourite of the several Sco albums that I have.

Louis StewartI Thought About You. With John Taylor, Billy Higgins, Sam Jones. World class jazz guitar.

Rebecca Kilgore with Dan Barrett Six – I Saw Stars. For Bucky Pizzarelli’s absolutely great acoustic rhythm playing and chord solos.

Ken Peplowski, Jon-Erik Kelso, Vince Giordano, Marty Grosz - Remembering Louis. A great album. Four guys sat around a single mic and it’s perfect.

Richie Kamuca Quartet - Richie.  With Mundell Lowe, Nick Ceroli, Monty Budwig. A very moving album, Richie’s last and Mundell was part of it.

Biréli Lagrène & FriendsLive at Vienne (DVD). Some fantastic gypsy jazz, perhaps the best you’ll ever hear. Astonishing playing from Bireli.
