A Few Words about 

This week at Hedsor Jazz.

Apart from the usual suspects in the front, (and even on the keyboard, new readers can always look back to previous blogs to make sure they know who are our usual suspects) we have changes to drums, as again we have an absent Martin Hart, and his usual sub will be with us (Mike Jeffries), but with Ken Rankine still trying to sing along with the Maltese, we have on bass Mr Berry!

Weymouth beach, Bank Holiday Monday!!

I haven’t listened to much recorded jazz whilst out and about in dreary Dorset (well pretty cold Dorset anyway) but one I purchased in Bridport Market fills in the odd niche. Simply called “Mainstream” it has 6 tracks by Vic Dickenson with 2 different line-ups, but included in your listening will be Joe Thomas on trumpet, Buddy Tate, Buck Clayton and Dickie Wells too! It was recorded in good quality stereo in 1958, and is 6 tracks of very good quality jazz. I will endeavor to include a photo of the cover for your delectation (no scanner to hand!).

Its on the KOCH JAZZ label KOC CD 8511

Next week of course we have our Cancer Research fundraiser. Karen Sharp and Stuart Henderson being our special guest. Ticket are £10 including a buffet, and the session starts at 8pm. If you haven’t yet got a ticket from either Hedsor on a Thursday, or from Cookham’s Stationery Depot, then there will be an opportunity to purchase some on the night at the door. Early birds catch the worms, so first come first served.

Sorry for the slightly scrappier blog, but I am limited to access!!
