There was an outbreak of trombone poetry in Jenny Lockyer‘s living room one rainy Saturday night. This was provoked by an invitation, and Jenny launched the evening herself with a few life-enhancing songs, before the trombone bounced the blues off a couple of overpopulated sofas. A short-range show.
At the end of the month, trombone poetry reappeared at The Book Club in Shoreditch, for the unsuspecting fans of Paolo Duarte’s Overground Collective. Large though the band is, they did not outnumber the crowd, and it was a pleasure to recite Vigil Aunty, A Great Deal and other works to the attentive throng, even to that woman with the miserable, glowering stare. The sparkling duo of Rachel Musson and Julie Kjaer then lit up the place, if not the face.
