Rendezvous Jazz @ Ashington Jazz Club. Wednesday, September 2,

.Maureen Hall (Voc); Gavin Lee (sop. sax.), Iain MacAulay (Trom.), Bill College (Bass), George Davidson (Drums), and Neville Hartley (Keyboard).
(Review and photo by Peter S.)
There is an expression "What goes around, comes around", and this was true of our "rendezvous" with Rendezvous. Four and a half years have passed since the last appearance which was a shock. Madeleine Peyroux sings Don't Wait Too Long and AJC has certainly done that. During this time changes have taken place as musicians move on but this combination proved to be a versatile group as they performed their multi skills throughout

the evening. We got four vocalists for the price of one and their talents were extended to other instruments which gave the audience a lot of pleasure throughout the extensive programme of twenty four melodies. Despite feeling unwell Iain interpreted some lyrics in his ever popular humorous style while Life is a Rose put a smile on everyone's face. Bass, drums and keyboard supported the front line while Maureen introduced the items. We enjoyed the evening while one of our members commented that this had been an enjoyable and relaxing evening in the company of good musicians delivering well known standards to which we could relate.
Next Jazz Night - Wednesday November 6 at 8.00 p.m. GAVIN LEE AND HIS DIXIELAND BAND
.See you there
