Golf and the Leinster

Updated: Sep 27

Golf: a pleasant walk in the countryside, ruined. The golfer Gary Player once chipped a ball from a near unplayable lie to within inches of the pin. A spectator  was heard to comment – Wow, that was a lucky shot! Gary agreed that it certainly was, but, observed that the more he practiced, the luckier he got . . .

Which brings me nicely to the Sunday Arvo Leinster Jam De Luxe. Strewth, but  they all turned up – some even played music. As fine an afternoon of ballad mangling as I can remember, so props to Frank the Finger, Keef (in fine form, kept playing the Captain’s faves before Col could get to them) Paul drums ‘n bass, Don, Jacin, John (a diverse selection of guitaristes this week), Agus (piano) accompanying Sir Roger who blew up a storm on alto sax, Noriyo (late starter, piano) , I think Ali and Peter played sax, but I can’t remember either , Jack on  Trombone, whose singing is no idle threat ,all led, as ever by Captain Chaos who had stops, fours, rhythm changes, medication changes, and another beer at the bar for me please, all down to a fine art.

Glen (landlord) got a fine round of applause for his drumming, and, come to think of it, so did Alan, when he stopped.

Jam sessions: a pleasant romp through the standards, ruined.

Hah! See ya next week somewhere – there’s more music than you can shake a stick at.

This rubbish also gets archived at Drop by: if I forgot to mention your contribution this week, you could check the blog: to make sure I forgot your name there as well. TW
