International Jazz Day @ The Globe.

I'm hoping we'll have some words from the International Jazz Day/Jazz Coop's Fifth Anniversary celebration at The Globe last Tuesday but, in the meantime, here are some photos from Debra Milne of what looks to have aced the day attendance-wise!

I believe the lovely Ann Alex is going to put together a bit of a review.
The splendid buffet went some way to compensating for my inability to consume any alcohol, due to driving duties.
Bradley and James were on top form as I realised it'd been a while since I've seen either.
The AM Jam kept things chilled and relaxed and most enjoyable.
The afore-mentioned Ms Alex stole the show with her rendition of All of Me (pictured).
The winner of Lance's quiz scored 10 against my 6, which included a dubious Miles Grable.
