Bejazzled @ York. What a swell party that was - by Liz.

Tim New (flt/ten/sop), Don Lodge (gtr), Ed Jackson (bs).
"A country dance was being held in a garden..." Actually it was a friends' significant birthday' party and, although I wasn't wearing polka dots and I had to leave before the moonbeams, it was a near perfect day. I cannot think of a better way than to party on a lovely sunny afternoon to such a great trio as "Bejazzled" here in the fair city of York. This band, so fitted the bill. With such faves as "Bluesette" " When Sunny Gets Blue" and a particularly fine version of" My Funny Valentine" it had all the summer ingredients that we wait for all winter! Tim is very well known here, and in immaculate dress, (Ed in a very fetching panama) with a laid back & gentlemanly manner, he & his guys were simply the best.

Checked the links out and the tracks - nice band. I'll have to catch them at the Olde White Swan next time I'm in your "Fair city".
