Perhaps to alleviate the pressure of standing in for Mark Bassey again in her band, Charlotte Glasson made room for the odd sample of trombone poetry at Birmingham Jazz Club and at a Schmazz gig in Newcastle. This was a good opportunity to share a few addages, sawns and whatnot beyond London, along with the poetry. The sawns went well with Charlotte’s saw solo.
There was also a return visit to Whitechapel’s Indo Bar, where a poem about the art being exhibited (mostly dog photos) was scribbled out before the pizza arrived, to be unleashed later on. Terry Edwards’ The Near Jazz Experience was then graced by a pBone.
