September 25th - Paul Harrison and Kevin Grenfell Quintet
Lunch time session (12.30-3.00 pm)
We start the new season with a smaller group for our first lunchtime session, slightly unusual as the two piece front line has no trumpet, on the other hand maybe Kevin Grenfell might occasionally lay down his trombone and change to trumpet.
Paul Harrison lives in Denmark so we have to grab him while he is over here and this time he gets together with regular favourite Kevin Grenfell to lead the band.
Nice to have a piano on stage, Phil Nice in this case and together with Pete Williams on bass and a drummer we haven’t seen for a while, Jack Cotterill.
The lunchtime sessions are proving quite popular, not surprising perhaps when you can hear a band like this for a fiver and with the excellent menu available what’s not to come out for?
October 1st - Doc Houlind's Revival All Stars from Denmark
For those of us who really enjoy the so called New Orleans Revival style of jazz we are in for a treat. A simple, melodic style, not too many notes with emphasis on ensemble playing.
Doc Houlind’s band, renowned in Denmark are masters of this style. We are lucky to be able to include our club in the band’s UK tour.
The personnel may be unknown to you at present but I guarantee they won’t be after you hear them. Doc, real name Soren, leads on trumpet with Jesper Capion Larsen on clarinet and Peter Goetz on trombone making up the front line.
In the engine room Lis Kroyer is on piano, Ebbe Kjaersgard on banjo, Holden Fogh on bass and Didier Geers on drums.
This will be our first evening session of the season and for a mixture of excitement in the faster numbers and passion in the slower ones, this one will be hard to beat.The high spot of the year.
