Bebop Spoken There

Clare Teal: "If you're brought up in a working-class family, you haven't got money for records so everything you get hold of, you treasure, learn to love, and I loved those Ella tapes." - (Radio Times 23-29 January 2021)

The Things They Say!

Jazz Café Jam Session

Sarah Travena (sop); Doug Fielder (ten); Ray Burns (hca/acc); Pete Gilligan (pno); Ray Truscott (bs); Omid Ramak (dms).
The Jazz Café, began life as a coachman's residence and later became a bakery and then a jazz venue. the building dates back to 1760, in many ways so does Keith Crombie, the proprietor a man with firm opinions on present day values. An intensely proud person, Keith has run the Jazz Café without outside funding for 20 years and is no stranger to tilting at windmills! Nor is he averse to giving praise where praise is due and today he was full of praise for the Sunday "afternoon" jammers.
Deservedly so, Sarah is continuingly developing on soprano and now that Pete is back to his two-handed best they make a great team.
On tenor Doug offers an interesting contrast whilst Ray Burns (pictured) played great harmonica as well as picking up the sartorial kudos. Ray Truscott and Omid helped drive things along and all in all it was an enjoyable session.
As a sort of an intermission three young guys - two guitars one conga drum - joined Pete and Ray Truskett for Take A Walk On The Wild Side. Without a mic it was difficult for the vocal to cut through so will reserve judgement.
Lance.
