Just a quick nag to drum up trade!! I am still unsure of the ease of access to The Hedsor Social Club, but you can get in via feet even if you have to park in the nearest bit if road. If you are as yet unaware of the situation, the gas mains commeth!
Thursday (tomorrow) we have another visit from the internationally renowned guitarist Max Britain, who will join Clive in front of the regular rhythm section.
On the last Thursday of the month (30th), we have a "special" evening, with Reading based trumpeter Stuart Henderson being joined by Ukrainian saxophonist TOLLY. I am assured he is as good as Stuart, so a grand night is in prospect. Usual rhythm section (and entry fee!) applies.
An advanced notice of another VERY special evening, Simon Spillett and his partner will be playing at Hedsor on Thursday August 13th, accompanied by the Zane Cronje Trio.
"Just to let you know that my partner, vocalist Debbie Wilson and I will be making a very special appearance at Hedsor Social Club on Thursday August 13th, accompanied by the Zane Cronje Trio.
As a little bit of background, Debbie has worked with, among others, guitarist Gary Potter and legendary pianist Johnny Patrick and has recently sang at the Birmingham Jazz Festival and recorded with my quartet featuring Martin Drew, John Critchinson and Andrew Cleyndert. We're also appearing at Goring-on-Thames (August 14th) and The Bulls Head, Barnes (August 26th). Debbie will appeal to all those who like vocals from the Julie London/June Christy/Doris Day end of the spectrum. Check out her website www.debbiewilsonsings.com where you can hear tracks recorded with the Simon Spillett Quartet (Of course, I'm biased! I think she's marvellous!)"
Make sure this one is in your diary, and that NOTHING prevents you from turning out for this wonderful evening of British jazz. And don't forget to tell your friends.
If you read the blog version of this nag, you will see a very happy photo of Simon and Debbie.
Thats about it for now, so its
