Jazz In The Afternoon. Crescent Club Cullercoats Easter Monday.

Iain MacAulay (Tmb/tpt/vcl/mc);Derek Fleck (reeds; Brian Chester (kbd/tmb); John C.Hallam (db/bb); Jim McKeown (dms); plus Barry Soulsby (clt); Roy Gibson (kbd); Doris Fenn (bjo); Teresa Armstrong & John Breddle (vcls).
In this ever changing world it's nice to know some things remain the same and Jazz In The Afternoon is one of them, apart from the view, the band having moved from the lounge to the bar. 
A varied programme, Sweet Sue and a smooth version of Marie, Blue Monk,(funny how you never hear Monk's Crepescule With Nellie these days), C.C. Rider Blues then banjo time with Just A Little While To Stay Here and Walking With The King both full of period charm. 
After the interval Teresa & Roy gave us Out of Nowhere, my request, and then an excellent My Old Flame. The two trombones said they Couldn't Give Us Anthing But Love, John Breddle promised to see us In His Dreams and then told us There'll Be Some Changes Made, Barry joined the band for the finale Dr. Jazz verse & chorus from Ian & sousaphone solo from J.C. Hallam. All in all a pleasant afternoon with a band who make it look so deceptivley easy.
