London Jazz Festival: Peter Ind Double Bass Master Class @ South Bank Centre. November 16.

Peter Ind (Double bass).
A masterclass ostensibly for bass players but of interest to anyone interested in jazz from the 1940s onward.
Now a young 85 year old and looking like Santa Claus he passed out his gifts of improvisation to the well attended room at Level 5 of the South Bank Centre.
Although British by birth, a trip to New York working with "Geraldo's Navy" on The Queen Mary told him the Big Apple was where he had to be. This he achieved and the tales of working with Lennie Tristrano (The founder of free form), Roy Eldridge (his favourite trumpet player) conjured up the picture of an era he rightly referred to as The Golden Age.
Playing a 400 year old bass "I didn't buy it new" he quipped, We heard beautifully toned versions of I Thought About You, Don't Get Around Much Anymore, Mean to Me and several more.
Tension and Resolution are Peter Ind's guide lines to a solo and he certainly aptly demonstrated those qualities.
A gem of a session.
Lance.
