More Bank Holidays to come!

So you should be in the mood for a little live jazz, which of course you can get from Hedsor Jazz this Thursday!

What better way to wind down for a long weekend than to come and hear The Clive Burton Quintet, with our guest this week, saxophonist Mark Aston.

Mark has played for us a number of times before, and it will be good to see him again in the Hedsor Social Club Big Room. Only a £6 entry fee with music from 8.30 pm. Beer and chat are available from 7 pm, so don't be afraid to come either early or late.

Do put in your diary another "special" D Day. On June 6th we will be hosting Karen Sharp, a rising star in the lady saxophonists galaxy. Do make a point of coming. Try bringing some friends to help fill the Big Room, and give Karen a big welcome. She hasn't been to Hedsor before, but has played before with some of its constituent musicians !!

As many of you are by now aware, we are trying to have more guest nights at Hedsor Jazz  in order to help fill the Big Room more often. We hope it will attract new people in to hear our excellent regular quintet and to realize what they have been missing. We would be very pleased if you could let us know who YOU would like to see and hear at some point at Hedsor Jazz. It would also help our finances too if you would feel able to sponsor a guest musician, either in whole or part. So let Clive or myself know who you would like and if you could sponsor that person. Please don't let us remain the best kept secret in the jazz world!

Not had a lot of time to listen to the recorded stuff this week, I'll try harder next time.

One last point, I used to be able to let over 70 people know about my blog and the local jazz events by email every week. However, these last few months I have become aware that most of my emails are now not getting through. I can only surmise that because of my regular weekly nagging my output is being blocked. I always "blind copied" lists of around a dozen people at a time.
Do tell your friends that I will always try and keep the blog up to date with news of Hedsor Jazz events. Look here first!! You could even become a follower!!

Never despair, life will do that for you!
