Bebop Spoken There

Brian Harvey: "The exciting day arrived and we [as under age school boys] snuck into the [pub's] rehearsal room, sat awkwardly to attention on hard chairs in a row facing the band and heard our first - very loud - live jazz. What an occasion that was - we even drank beer because we understood that's what jazz people did and that's what the band were drinking." - (Just Jazz June 2020)

Dave Rempis:Ten years from now, I can see musicians streaming concerts in real time and charging a minimal amount for people to watch.” - (DownBeat September 2013)

There is an expression "What goes around, comes around", and this was true of our "rendezvous" with Rendezvous. Four and a half years have passed since the last appearance which was a shock. Madeleine Peyroux sings Don't Wait Too Long and AJC has certainly done that. During this time changes have taken place as musicians move on but this combination proved to be a versatile group as they performed their multi skills throughout

the evening. We got four vocalists for the price of one and their talents were extended to other instruments which gave the audience a lot of pleasure throughout the extensive programme of twenty four melodies. Despite feeling unwell Iain interpreted some lyrics in his ever popular humorous style while Life is a Rose put a smile on everyone's face. Bass, drums and keyboard supported the front line while Maureen introduced the items. We enjoyed the evening while one of our members commented that this had been an enjoyable and relaxing evening in the company of good musicians delivering well known standards to which we could relate.
Next Jazz Night - Wednesday November 6 at 8.00 p.m. GAVIN LEE AND HIS DIXIELAND BAND
.See you there
