The Blowpipes Trombone Trio rounded off March with three sets of jazz, classical, folk music and other genres, including original pieces, for the Scandinavian Street Market in Rotherhithe. We look forward to a tour of Rotherhithean markets in Scandinavia.
There was also the odd Ellingtonian shenanigan with Harry Strutters Hot Rhythm Orchestra, with a trip abroad scheduled later this month (see below).
Though April was quiet, trombone poetry pipes up twice in May.

Live radio show in which The Near Jazz Experience (Mark Bedford, Simon Charterton, Terry Edwards) and their guests talk about the purposes and pitfalls of being a musician and the genre of Spoken Word set to music. Featuring trombone poetry, where words are deliberately not set to music.
