Jazz in the Afternoon @ Cullercoats Crecent Club. Monday 30th August.

Brian Chester (keyboards & trombone), Iain McAulay (trombone, trumpet & vocals), Derek Fleck (clarinet & tenor saxophone), John Hallam (double bass & sousaphone) & Ollie Rillands (drums & vocals) + Teresa McMullen (?) (vocals), Roy Gibson (keyboards), Doris Fenn (banjolele), Laurence McBriarty (trombone) & Miles Watson (vocals)
Holiday Monday and the joint was jumpin'. So full was it that extra seats were brought through from the bar. From the Crescent Club's sea view windows, white horses were dancing to the North Sea horizon. Inside feets weren't failin' us with C Jam Blues as the opener, booted along by some meaty tenor fom Derek Fleck. A varied set list included Just a Little While to Stay Here to Dr.Jazz with Miles Watson dispensing the prescription to Monk's Straight No Chaser. There was some good three 'bone ensemble work courtesy of Chester, McAulay and McBriarty, John Hallam enjoyed it all and Ollie Rillands, excellent drummer that he is, treated one and all to a Jerry Lee Lewis vocal medley. A canny afternoon.
Russell.
