Baby Jools Jazzaholics

Wow! A second band in succession playing in the New Orleans style! Baby Jools with his Jazzaholics appearing for his annual visit come next with the enthusiasm they always show. Denny Illett provides a strong trumpet lead, Karl Hird gives a lyrical clarinet and a fiery tenor sax and Mike Owen completes the front line with his “full of New Orleans background” trombone. What a front line! No slouches in the rhythm section either, Brian Mellor on banjo and guitar, Jim Swinnerton slapping the bass and Baby Jools (what a powerful drummer!) really drive the band. No-one sleeps while they’re on!
