Calvert & the Old Fools @ Number One Bar - Feb 1

En route to Darlington New Orleans Club your correspondent wandered past Number One Bar on rhe corner of Coniscliffe and Skinnergate. It was early - 11:30am - yet that didn't stop Calvert and the Old Fools opening their brunch set with Almost Like Being in Love. Richie Emmerson on tenor, sun streaming through the windows, the boys in the band were playing for themselves until their anticipated audience walked in. Meanwhile, just round the corner, Denise Gordon was soon to arrive at St Augustine's for a Darlington New Orleans Jazz Club gig.
