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)

Livestream from Ronnie's: Heidi Vogel presents Sarah Vaughan's "The Brazilian Albums" - March 18

(Screenshots by Ken Drew)

Tonight, Ronnie Scott’s presented live - vocalist Heidi Vogel singing tunes from Sarah Vaughan’s Brazilian Albums. I had not heard of this singer although she has appeared at many prestigious events eg Montreux Jazz Festival for Quincy Jones, The Sydney Opera House and with The Krakow Symphony Orchestra. She performed as a soloist for the 2019 BBC Proms at The Royal Albert Hall giving a recital of The Sacred Music of Duke Ellington.

Tonight she was accompanied by a great band, Ivo Neame on piano, Tom Farmer bass, Shaney Forbes drums, and special guests Rachel Cohen alto sax and Josue Ferrira guitar and vocals.  Watched virtually by almost 500, her songs included Double Rainbow an Antonio Carlos Jobim number, Dreamer, The Face I Love, Dindi, You’re Everything a song written by Chick Corea and Roses that Bloom in the Spring a duet with Josue Ferreira on guitar singing in Portuguese and English. She has an incredible range and texture with lots of emotion and control.

Then out of the blue Ian Shaw appeared with a bobble cap and sweat shirt, had his arm twisted, and ‘reluctantly’ performed with Heidi. Absolutely brilliantly they sang Make this City Ours Tonight. Heidi finished with a beautiful rendition of Goodbye.

If you don’t know Heidi already, keep an eye out for her in the future I  certainly will.
