I know you all know, but just to really NAG you, tomorrow is our very special Gala night for jazz in this part of the world (South Bucks). In order to raise funds for Hedsor Jazz, we are putting on a VERY special night, tomorrow from 8 pm (note the earlier start time). We have performing with the Clive Burton Quintet:- (ladies first)
Tracey Mendham on tenor sax and personality!
Simon Spillett on Best Tenor Sax in the UK (performed with tie)!
Stuart Henderson on Trumpet. Yet to win an award, but I have yet to hear a better trumpet man.
Andy Dickens on Trumpet and vocals, possibly jokes as well.
Can I request “I Cant Get Started” now please, it was a hit at Swanage this year.
John Coverdale on guitar. A quiet man, but hear and watch how he plays!
I’m sure more musicians will come out of the woodwork just to be part of the night. I hope you come out too. It’s only £10 a head, including a light buffet (OK it may be a packet of crisps!) AND a chance to win one of our infamous raffle prizes!
Support live jazz at Hedsor!!
BUT do save some energy for next Tuesday, because at Bourne End Community Centre they have Al Nicholls who emailed me to say:-
“it may be of interest to you and the good folks at Hedsor (?), that I am playing at Mo's club at the Bourne End Community Centre on the 1st November with Bob Haddrell piano, Nils Solsberg guitar and the indefatigueable Rex Bennett on drums. It would be nice to see some friendly faces there.”
Can I stand the pace? But you can!!
PS. If you really cant make either of those two events (flu, child birth, world financial crisis, are only excuses you know!), you could order on line "Wynton Marsalis and Eric Clapton Play The Blues". It is Preposterously good!
