Jazz On A Summer's Day - NEJC End of Season Festival

Eight bands. In order of appearance: Alter Ego, Zoe Gilby, Saxaphonics, Extreme Measures (pictured left), Splinter Group, Andy Champion + Graeme Wilson, TASQ and Ruth Lambert.
Unfortunately, I missed the first three but everyone I spoke to said they all played exciting sets.
Pointless to make comparisions amongst the ones I did hear, all did their own thing brilliantly and I wondered when, if ever, apart from that 'Great Day in Harlem', so much jazz talent per square yard had been assembled under one roof, on one day, anywhere in the world!
Many thanks to Paul and his team. Roll on next season
