Me and Him
Gambit Jazzmen – Line-up: Alan Gresty (cnt), Barry Weston (tmb), Roger Bird (clt/tnr), Andy Maynard (bjo/gtr), Roger Link (bs), Pete Lay (ldr/dms). This band always give the audience plenty of excitement with their varied song book. The mellow tones of the rhythm section give sway to the richness of the front line. Barry Weston (tmb) gives a formidable performance ably supported by Alan Gresty and Roger Bird. Great session. Here is "Precious Lord Take My Hand".
Sammy Rimington’s International Jazz Band – Line-up: Sammy Rimington (clt/alto), Philippe de Smet (tmb), Emile van Pelt (pno), Paul Sealey (bjo/gtr), Trefor Williams (bass), Norman Emberson (dms). Great musicians in this band who gave a well rounded performance. Some very inspired solos – and two more sets to come!! Here is "Tiger Rag".
Savannah Jazz Band – line-up: Brian Ellis (tmb), Roger Myerscough (clt/alto), Bill Smith (cnt/vcls), Chris Marney (bjo), Tony Pollitt (bass) John Meehan (ldr/dms). A most enjoyable band for dancing and listening to. A great repartee. Lovely ensemble and solos and the bonus of piano (Brian Ellis) and blues harmonica (Bill Smith). An extremely entertaining and popular band.
Doc Houlind’s Revival Jazz Band – Line-up: Kristian Barfoed (tmb), Ragnar Tretow (tpt), Jesper Larson (clt), Ebbe K. Hansen (bjo), Liz Kroyer (pno), Brian Turnock (bass), Doc Houlind (ldr/dms). Very good ensemble with well appreciated solos. This band is a must see – don’t miss them.
Festival New Orleans All Stars – Line-up: Mike Pointon (ldr/tmb), Sammy Rimington (clt/alto), Teddy Fullick (tpt), Eric Webster (bjo), Ray Smith (pno), Trefor Williams (bass), Colin Bowden (dms). Never one for favouring one band over another, different styles, musicians, etc., on this occasion this band, excuse the saying – pressed all the buttons. Hope you enjoy our choice here.
