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)

Isaiah Collier & the Chosen Few live streaming from Small's - Mar. 25

Isaiah Collier (tenor sax, soprano sax); Jeremiah Hunt (double bass); Michael Ode (drums)

Something a little different this evening from West 10th Street. Isaiah Collier is a new name to BSH, as are the/his 'Chosen Few'. The 'Chosen' on this gig, presumably regular associates, were bassist Jeremiah Hunt and drummer Michael Ode. Much of their set came from the outside, on occasion swinging in, thanks to Michael Ode's impressive drumming. 

Collier, in a white overcoat recalling Lester Bowie's lab coat, possesses a huge sound. It would have been good to have been in Small's basement space to experience it up close. For now, the live stream is the only option. Small's audio-visual presentation isn't the best, but hey, there is something endearing about what amounts to a DIY venture, a venture which has been documenting every performance - 17000 and counting - at the Greenwich Village venue since 2007. Oh, to be there in person...one day, one day. Russell.
