chronicle: June 2011

Though barred from the pulpit, trombone poetry delivered unto the throng a sheaf of fresh poems and instant compositions, after basking in the radiance of the Cellestial Quartet at the Union Chapel. Daylight Music: cultural uplift.

Out in the wilds of Kent, trombone poetry was welcomed back to The Naturist Foundation Jazz Festival and its well-stocked beer tent. Foundling poems mined from The Thanet Times and other organs were given an airing. Deirdre Cartwright, Kathy Dyson and the enigmatically named Sarah P paid a thoughtful and intricate tribute to Emily Remler. Sam Leak unveiled a series of solo piano works to round off the evening.

There was another ration of ruM (Mike Walter & Paul Taylor) at Freedom of Expression in Croydon, with refined versions of Nobby Hall, Emerald and so forth.

The month ended on a high note, with a glad return to Salisbury Poetry CafĂ©, cultivated by poet Grace Gauld, where trombone poetry offered fresh poems and a new piece of music by Sarah Collins: an arrangement of the folk song, She’s Like the Swallow. We look forward to more compositions for solo trombone from readers of this chronicle, even beyond Wiltshire.
