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)

Live at Joe's: Thelonious Monk - Mar. 27

Joe Webb (piano)

Pianist Joe Webb chatted amiably with his online audience ahead of playing the first of today's eight tunes written by Thelonious Monk, Let's Cool One. Our host confessed that until he started doing his homework for this afternoon's live stream he hadn't really checked out Thelonious Sphere Monk. Stuffy Turkey then Ruby, My Dear heard Joe putting his own stamp on Monk's compositions. Online comment came thick and fast, all of it complimentary about Joe and Thelonious. One minor quibble...Joe's upright is in need of some TLC! 

Listening to Joe play Bemsha Swing without resorting to mimicry, the thought occurred that Joe and Thelonious would have got along like a house on fire! Bye-Ya really taxed Joe, but, our man did a great job of the tricky-dicky number. Joe left the best 'til last - Thelonious. tremendous. Next week, live from Oliver's Jazz Bar in Greenwich, London, Joe will be live streaming with Riley Stone-Lonergan, Conor Chaplin and Corrie Dick. Log on at 2:00pm BST.
