As we all know there are no live gigs taking place in the immediate future. However, any links to jazz streaming that are deemed suitable - i.e. with a professional approach - will be considered for posting.

The Mick Danby Mix - an emotional night at Caedman Hall. July 5

Mick Danby wasn't just a fine bass player he also sang bass and applied his talents across the genres.
Tonight that talent, and the love it engendered, was beautifully displayed in this tribute concert. Perhaps more of the jazz hierarchy should have been present but it didn't matter, the jazz side was well taken care of by the Debra Milne Ensemble with Debs, Steve, Paul and Rob Bates. Debra seems to have upped her game recently and her version of Spain stands comparison with anyone. Mick was surely applauding loudly from above.
Earlier, Mick's partner Teresa sang with the Heaton Voices and the Voicequad Variations whose version of the Inkspots/Man Tran Java Jive ticked all the boxes for me! 
Emma Fisk ticked a lot of boxes too during her set with Luna De Mayo and, after the Appletwig Songbook, the evening came to a danceable close with Incahoots.
The evening was a worthy tribute to a talented gentleman.
