Rendezvous Jazz @ The Porthole. December 7

Maureen Hall (vocals), Iain MacAulay (trombone, trumpet & vocals), Roy Gibson (keyboards), Derek Fleck (clarinet) & Jim McKeown (drums) + Theresa Armstrong (vocals) & Joan Armstrong (vocals)
Maureen Hall’s Friday lunchtime band set sail for Dixie at their long-running residency at the Porthole public house adjacent to North Shields’ ferry landing. The first blast of winter kept some of the regulars indoors, Derek Fleck stood in for Barry Soulsby (away in Northumberland with Brian Bennett’s Vieux Carré Jazzmen) but otherwise it was business as usual. The tunes were familiar (sing-a-long most of the time): Everybody Loves My Baby, a false starting Rosetta (much mirth!), Bye Bye Blues, It’s Only a Paper Moon, Deed I Do, All of Me (good trombone from Iain MacAulay, good clarinet from Fleck), I Can’t Give You Anything But Love and more. Good company, good music, the added attraction of Theresa and Joan singing a couple of numbers made for an enjoyable afternoon. Next week (Friday 14) is the band’s Christmas party. A little early perhaps in view of the fact the band will be at the Porthole the following week (Friday 21)! Hall’s full line-up will be at Jazz at the Fell tonight (Gateshead British Legion) at 8.30.pm.
Russell.
