Rendezvous Jazz @ The Black Horse, Monkseaton.

Maureen Hall (Vocals); Barry Soulsby (Clar.), Don Fairly (Tromb..), George Davidson (Drums/Vocals), and Roy (Keyboard & Bass Pedals) - Joined by special guests John Minnion (Tpt) Paul Bacon (Drums), Liz Bacon (Clar.) Also in the picture GORDON SOLOMON (Trombone [Retired])

What a jam session this was!!! A swinging gig with endless changes in line up and styles. Every time I looked up someone else had arrived on stage. George sang by his self while Paul played the drums for part of the second set.  Liz and Barry did two Clarinet duos and Peter Wright look alike John Minnion completed the full front line presentation. Barry made an excellent job of the Clinton Ford number The Old Bazaar in Cairo. Nice to see so many old friends in jazz including Gordon Solomon (Solly) who said he really enjoyed the gig
All strength to Maureen for putting together such a great afternoon of jazz & the chips with the corned beef and onion toasties weren't bad either!
