    Alex Clarke Hot Five

    For the second time in a month we'll be welcoming a band of young, well, comparatively young, musicians to the club. Alex Clarke comes with a huge recommendation and she will lead a five piece group with a strong New Orleans sound. An amazingly versatile reed player, Alex plays, clarinet, tenor sax and flute in a variety of styles but frequent visitor Mike Owen on trombone will keep her in the New Orleans style. The other members of the Hot five are all well known to our members; that superb pianist Tom Kincaid, the driving Jim Swinnerton on bass and the well established New Orleans drummer Jack Cotterill all promise to make this a great evening.

    Washington Whirligig (Friday lunchtime after our AGM)

    We have put on lunchtime jazz sessions several times and the poor attendances have shown these have limited attraction. However, our members turn out for our AGM in strong numbers and they present a captive audience for a lunchtime do. As we have shown before, Washington Whirligig always give us a happy couple of hours of jazz..Members only for the AGM at 12.00 but the music will start directly after for members and guests alike. Great value for a fiver.

    Mike Lovell Six-In-A-Bar Classic Jazz Band

    Is it really five years since we had this Classic band at the club? We don't get much in the way of classic jazz so this style of part arranged, part improvised music should give us a rare pleasure. On the front line together with Mike Lovell on trombone will be Phil Lucas on trumpet and that soulful instrument, the flugelhorn and Willy Entwhistle of Temperance Seven fame on reeds. Chris Howse, besides playing banjo and guitar will give us some unusual vocals, Colin Turner as well as providing the bass line on tuba will also be playing bass sax and John Smith will complete the rhythm section on percussion. An evening of back to the 20s and 30s music is in store.
