Jazz Café Jam

Pete Gilligan (pno), Paul Grainger (bs), Claire Kelly (vcl) + (in approx. order of appearance) David Gray (tmb), Omad Ramik (dms), Rob Bates (dms), Alan Law (pno), Don Forbes (tpt), Ivan Scutt (bs), Stuart Findon (ten), Fiona Littlewood (ten), Lindsay Hannon (vcl) etc.
The session began low key with the two PG's giving tips to Claire who - Glory Hallelujah! - sang Love Me Or Leave Me in the way that it should be sang i.e. slow and laid back. Anita O'Day has a lot to answer for!
Pete and Paul did some nice things to Early Autumn and Dave the trombone slid his way around Speak Low. Don Forbes blew a tender Tenderly as well as having a blast on Anthropology. David featured on Caravan by which time Stuart and Fiona had unwrapped tenors and were working out on Four.
Sadly it was now time to leave - The Sage beckoned...
