A POLISHED SESSION WITH A FUNK FINALE

Jam Sessions come and go, wax and wane, and then do a bit more waxxing. This one was positively shiny

POCKOTL got there early, with her chauffeure, and looked in the pink. Great to see her. Jayne more or less opened the proceedings by singing Easy Living which has a stinker of a key change in the bridge, but worked as it should. Aneta was in fine form again, and produced the belter du jour - an up tempo version of Ray Charles' Halleluiah. Basso profundo maestro Michael Currie put in a protracted session - solid bass makes such a difference to the overall proceedings. Colin Mark 2, bongoist, left his stands at home, but when he got back proved to be an absolute asset to the rhythm section, All the guitars I didn't mention last week (apparently) were there - Mike still experimenting with the sound, Roger getting better as the day wore on, and Cardinal Pell, a blast from the past, proving the pick of them,.

Peter Garam, Malcolm, Tony Luxmoore and meself wandered around the keys, Martin and the Hirsch slapped things nicely, before signor Perri turned up and (a) played beautifully before (b) leaving his drumssticks behind...

All of which leads to Annie and Deb duetting on a funked up Grand Slam, with Mr Michael on Bari, Jeff on sax and the Captain on his way early to another function, all led by Anton to a funking fine finish. There is a video record, but mercifully it is unplayable.

21 musos all up. A polished day indeed!

Wrong Again, again
