Rae Brothers New Orleans Jazz Band with guest Sammy Rimington @ Gateshead Fell Friday Nov. 20

Dave Rae bjo, Mac Rae kit, Chris Smith bass, Jim Blenkin tbn, Peter Wright tpt, Eric Brooks, piano, Sammy Rimington clt/alto This was a very well attended session and a very enjoyable one. The Rae Brothers play a gentle, infectious brand of New Orleans jazz which has a certain rhythmic lilt that draws you in from the first number. It’s not hard to see why they are so popular at jazz clubs and festivals around the UK and abroad. They are also very popular monthly regulars at The Fell. For this session, they were joined by Sammy Rimington, a star of the New Orleans circuit who came to the fore with Ken Colyer’s famous band back in 1960 when he was only 17 years old. He was with that band about 5 years. Since then Sammy has worked with Chris Barber, Capt John Handy, Kid Thomas and a host of internationally known old style players both in Europe and the States. He is a very fluent player both on clarinet and alto with an intuitive sense of drama, rhythm and the building of a solo. His unique ‘feel’ for the music shines through and his playing was a delight that was well appreciated by the large audience. The repertoire was standard traditional fare – When You Wore a Tulip, Bugle Boy March, I Get the Blues When it Rains, The Other Line (Bourbon Street Parade), etc. All in all a grand evening and everyone went home happy. What more can you want? All credit to Ron & Joyce Pollard, Lance Cousins and the helpers at this club who have done a fantastic job in successfully keeping it going. It is one of the best traditional jazz clubs in the UK and right on our doorstep. The late Ray Brown, who started it off, would be very proud.
