National Youth Jazz Collective @ Kings Place. Sept. 12

Ella Hohnen (voice); ? (ten); ? (clt/bs clt); ? (pno); ? (gtr); ?(bs gtr); ? (dms). (Names to follow - see comment).
Elsewhere, Martin Carthy and Dave Swarbrick were performing but for me the National Youth Jazz Collective performing on one of the free stages held more appeal. Average age 15, they gave a performance that belied their tender years.
Was ever a singer more appropriately named than this Ella. Using her voice instrumentally she blended in perfectly with the horns who were themselves quite something else. Apologies for not getting the names, hopefully later.
It was good to meet up with one of their tutors again - Issie Barratt last seen conducting the Voice of the North Jazz Orchestra some years back. Issie, along with Mark Lockheart, Norma Winstone and Mike Walker, has done a grand job with these youngsters.
Also said hello to Martin Hummel of Edition Records.
