Good Monday Jazz Fans,
A couple of messages about this weeks Jazz.
First the good news, at Hedsor on Thursday we have, alongside Clive Burton and the Quartet, that wonderful trumpet and flugel horn player Stuart Henderson. We last saw him leading that great Big Band “The Remix Jazz Orchestra” back in May, so his return is more than welcome. I have suggested to our bands revered leader that we might like to invite Stuarts regular accomplice, saxophonist “Tolly” to be with us as well, and we will have to wait and see if we do get an augmented Thursday evening. Hedsor Jazz evenings starts at and those in the bar cost £6.
I can also now reveal that our star guest for Hedsor Jazz’s Christmas Party on December 20th is singer, and star of more than one Ealing Jazz Festival, Gil Cook.
Check out http://www.gillcook.co.uk/ for more information about her career and CD. Her website is as up to date as our Christmas Party too! Tickets will be on sale very soon for this Big Room event, but do put the date in your diary NOW. We will have other guests, and I hope to be able to confirm at least one other very soon.
We have a sad piece of news to end with. We were horrified to learn late last week that the son of local drummer Mike Jeffries was killed the previous weekend whilst on holiday in
. He was 25 years old. Our heartfelt sympathy goes
out to Mike and all his family. Mike is a regular at Hedsor, often playing for
us when Martin Hart is away. I am sure you would all like to offer your heartfelt
sympathy to the family and we will be providing a card for all to sign at
Hedsor this week. Thailand
