Vieux Carré Jazzmen @ The Corner House

Gerry Denning (cor/vcl), Gordon McGregor (clt/alt/sop/vcl), Barry Soulsby (clt/alt/vcl), Lawrence McBriarty (tmb), Brian Bennett (bjo), Brian Sibbald (bs), Fred Thompson (dms/vcl).
Two visiting horns in the frontline - Gerry Denning and Gordon McGregor. The former is a Swale Valley Stomper, the latter's pedigree was not disclosed. Nevertheless, capable musicians both who slotted in well with the VCJ.
Denning directed the traffic with his firm lead in "Bourbon Street Parade". whilst McGregor blew Louis Jordan style alto on "Aint Misbehavin", as well as soprano and a reedy sounding clarinet on other numbers. They both sang in the time honoured tradition of just about every instrumentalist since Satchmo Armstrong.
Barry Soulsby gave his alto a rare outing although mostly he stuck to clarinet "Apex Blues" in tandem with McGregor worked well - Barry also sang. Lawrence McB had a few preaching solos using plunger but didn't sing. Fred Thompson did, Brian Bennett and Brian Sibbald didn't.
It was a lovely way to spend an evening, couldn't think of anything I'd rather do (well I could but that's another story...)
