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)

Winard Harper & Jeli Posse live streaming from Small's, NYC - Mar. 27

(Screenshot by Russell)
Ted Chubb (trumpet); Anthony Ware (tenor sax); Charlie Sigler (guitar); Nick Masters (piano); Dishan Harper (double bass); Gabriel Roxbury (percussion); Winard Harper (drums); Kameelah Harper (vocals) 

A dynamic start, as is the way with drummer Winard Harper, our bandleader keeping a firm hand on the tiller during a one hour set encompassing swing to bop material, the solos shared across the frontline and the rhythm section. Trumpeter Ted Chubb, tall, lean, stepped on and off the stage, as did tenor saxophonist Anthony Ware. Percussionist Gabriel Roxbury's participation added to the set's dynamic thrust, not that the all-action Winard Harper required much in the way of assistance! Nick Masters is a class pianist, it would be good to catch him in NYC sometime. Vocalist Kameelah Harper joined the septet to sing a couple of numbers in what proved to be an energetic, vibrant set.
