We have a couple of guest musicians joining Clive Burton this week. 

In place of Nigel Fox, we have Ken McCarthy on keyboard. It is always a joy to have Ken join our ensemble,and as Nigel is holidaying on a Greek Island, who better than Ken to replace him. Ken will be joining the band for 2 weeks. 

Also, coming straight from Bulgaria (or is it the Ukraine?) is bass player Steve Pickings. Yes, he does comedy as well! Our regular bass player has a better paid gig in London!!

The rest of the Quintet are as normal. Well, as normal as anything led by Clive Burton can be!

As a matter of interest (OK Comment!) The Clive Burton Quintet went down well at last Saturdays day of jazz at the Flowing Spring pub near Reading.

One member of the band stayed on and played another set with The Jonathan Lewis/Stuart Henderson Sextet later in the day...see photo below!!

The Jonathan Lewis/Stuart Henderson Sextet played very tight arrangements of the Blue Note Record repertoire and were an excellent addition to the day. 

Well done Stuart for organising this day of jazz. 

Don't forget that another day of jazz is planned for September 26th at St. Piran's school in Maidenhead when "Hedsor Jazz Goes to School". There will be 12 hours of jazz all in excellent surroundings, and all under cover!! Posters will be available very soon. Any profit made will be going to Cancer Research UK, who will have a stand at the event.

That's it for this Tuesday's posting, see you on Thursday. We could do with you, and all of your extended family by the way, income doesn't quite match expenditure at the moment!!
