Bebop Spoken There

Lakecia Benjamin: "From my early days with Clark Terry, he told me 'they see you before they hear you'... I'm just not from that school of thought where I'm gonna wear my jeans and T-shirt on stage and that's going to be respectable." - (Jazzwise, February 2023)

The queue forms on the right girls...

The Naturist Foundation Jazz and Real Ale Festival announce the full line-up for their Jazz and Real Ale Festival which takes place from the 27th to the 30th June 2013. The event is the only four day outdoor jazz festival in the UK. Jerry Turner, Music Director of the Festival said “I am very pleased with the programme for this year which features some jazz greats as well as emerging talent. The Thursday evening features young musicians who are establishing a name for themselves such as Yazz Ahmed, Kieren Stickle McLeod and Jack Davies. The rest of the festival includes musicians such as Peter King the greatest alto player in the UK, Frank Griffith and Jean Toussaint from the USA, Vasilis Xenopoulos from Greece, Digby Fairweather, Julian Marc Stringle, Ben Cummings, Byron Wallen, the MJQ Celebration with Karen Sharp, and the solo piano of Keith Nichols over Sunday lunch. A New Orleans style umbrella parade through the grounds is
followed by Harry Strutters Jive and Swing for a fun filled Saturday afternoon.”
The event is clothing optional so non-naturist jazz fans are welcome. Alongside the music marquee is a real ale and cider tent with drinks at around £2.50 a pint. Plenty of reasonable priced food is available.
The Foundation is set in 50 acres of ancient woodland and meadowland and has a covered heated  swimming pool and sauna. Camping packages are available as are day tickets, all offering great value for money. We are near Swanley and Orpington. Free car parking. Full details on www.naturistfoundation.org
