Jazz Café jam session coda – Francesco sings!

The jam session drew to a close. Pianist Francesco Falconi stood at the mic and sang. My Romance, then Autumn Leaves (scatting in parts). A revelation! Those on the stand with him – apologies for any omissions – featured a cookin’ rhythm section (Alan Law, Paul Grainger and, last to sit in, Russ Morgan), Paul Gowland, Stuart and Fiona Finden and Joe Fowler. The house lights went up. It could/should have gone on ‘til yon time.
