Jam Session at the Jazz Café

Claire Kelly (vcl), Pete Gilligan (pno), Paul Grainger (bs), Mark Williams, Matthew Office (gtr), Eric Stutt (dms).
I shudda stayed in bed!
No reflection on the music but the dreaded lurgi had took control and I was a bit zombified.
Not sufficiently stricken to not appreciate Whisper Not, All Blues by Matthew, Pete etc nor Claire's take on Summertime and the lovely version of I've Got The World on a String which, after some hesitancy all round eventually copped.
Claire finished off with West Coast Blues - a dangerous choice given that all the local big-hiitters have put their brand on it. Nevertheless, Claire did okay plus there was a belting solo by Mark (pictured) and Pete.
Fiona and Stu arrived carrying horns and Lindsay - whose birthday it was - was said to be on her way but the dreaded chest infection was getting worse - thank God I'm not Dolly Parton! and, reluctantly, I left - desperate for some TLC.
Not one of the things Nexus offer to travellers...
Lance.
