Today, Thursday, May May 10th, Clive Burtons regular quintet are playing for us at Hedsor.
On Thursday May 24th at Hedsor, Clive is relinquishing his chair to guitarist John Coverdale, who will play alongside our regular saxophonist Mike Wills. Both these nights will have our usual entry fee of £5.
BUT don't forget to get you ticket for our Big Band night, May 17th, when we have Stuart Henderson leading The Remix Jazz Orchestra in Hedsor’s “big room”. The Clive Burton Quintet will again be in attendance, with a very special guest, UK’s top tenor saxophonist Simon Spillett. Tickets for this event are now available at £10 each, which will also get you free car parking and a light bite to eat!! They can be purchased from The Stationery Depot in Cookham 01628 521921 or from Dee on Thursday.
As a plug for this event I have been invited to talk about it and to play a couple of jazz “records” on Marlow FM this coming Sunday, May 13th on Mike Eagleton’s jazz program between 9 pm an 11 pm. Tune it if you can to 97.5 FM
Yesterday the funeral took place of Len Goodyer, one of our long term attendee's. Although a very sad occasion, it was a very moving service, simple jazz and simple words combining to make a very fitting tribute to Len.
