The Jazz Lads with James Harrison @ Saltburn Golf Club - June 3

James Harrison (keys); Ray Dales (alto); Ian Bosworth (guitar); Adrian Beadnell (bass); and Mark Hawkins (drums)
A record audience at the Golf Club were given a special treat when James Harrison guested with the band for the first time.
The evening’s programme was a mix of popular Jazz standards starting with Coming Home Baby and Sonny Rollins Doxy. It soon became clear to the members of the audience that James was an exceptional keyboard  player particularly after he was featured in a rousing rendition of Caravan. 
Ian was then featured in George Benson's version of Affirmation followed by Ray with Since I Fell For You. Further numbers included Misty and Work Song,
When Sunny Gets Blue, the funky Jazz style of The Chicken then finishing the night off with There Will Never Be Another You.
The monthly Jazz night at Saltburn Golf Club now seems to be firmly established.
