Jazz in the Afternoon @ The Crescent Club Cullercoats.

Iain McAulay (tmb/vcl), Derek Fleck (clt/ten/bjo), Brian Chester (pno/tmb), Bill College (bs), Jim McKeown (dms), + Barry Soulsby (clt/vcl), Teresa Armstrong (vcl), Doris Fenn (bjo).
Always an air of gaity about at the Crescent Club which shows in the music. Nothing to be taken too serious - just Goodtime Jazz with a degree of hokum thrown into the mix.
Brian on keys had some inspired moments behind Barry Soulsby and Derek Fleck on "Bueno Sera". I must admit to misgivings when the tune was announced but pleased to say that once they'd despatched the melody both clarinetists played good solo's as well as duetting impressively - their individual lines interweaving contrapuntally - Barry lithe and sinuous, Derek meaty and forceful. Barry exercised his vocal chords too.
Must of the vocal work was done by Iain - "Doctor Jazz" and various blues. Teresa too had her regular workout - this time on "Unforgetable" followed by "That's All".
As well as the music an old cycling buddy, Jim Fleming, was in so a few memories were exchanged. As I left, Derek was unpacking his banjo - this I insist was pure coincidence and had nothing to do with me leaving!
