Blue Jazz Voices 2nd End Of Term Gig; Ernest Cafe-Bar; July 8

See the review for last Monday’s event. The jazz-singing class is too numerous for all of us to strut our stuff on the same evening, so the second set of ‘voices’ performed last night, and they made a really good sound and entertained us mightily.  Once again, I cannot comment on my colleagues, but it was lovely to sit back and listen to others, without having the responsibility of performing myself, without having to decide on which key to sing in, the timing, the style of song, be it swing, ballad or bossa, the intros and outros etc.  As I said previously, there’s more to jazz-singing than you might think.
Readers may be interested to know our repertoire for this term.  The 5 songs we covered were: All The Things You Are; If You Never Come To Me; Get Out Of Town; Darn That Dream; and Four.  We rounded off proceedings with mass singing of Four.  We thoroughly enjoyed doing this, but I'm not sure what Miles Davis would have made of it!
Thanks again to Lindsay and the Blue Jazz Quintet.  See you all next term!
Ann Alex.
