Did I Miss Something

Jams Sessions Review for 6th February 2022


The view from the piano stool was... err... a bit constant. There being no other pianists in the mob, a rather long day of key bashing ensued, with the concomitant inability to record names.

So if you don't get a mention, it was not because you are too young, good looking, talented and modest to deserve it, but rather that this week's review involves winging it.

Fun start with members of the Australian Jazz museum - singing with a band didn't faze Hermione one little bit. And her name possibly wasn't Hermione, although it could have been, I didn't have time to check. Autumn Leaves, At Last and pages and pages of music, all of which blew off the stand and onto the floor. Thanks, swampies.

Monsieur Currie (double bass) put in another fine stint, as did Martin on drums. And Anthony Pell came again, playing both guitar, and bass but not at the same time. Ash the crooner was there, as was Rick - first time in ages we have had two good singers, keep this up and we will have a male voice choir in no time.

I think there were 22 musicians all up, and I think they played rather well. POCKOTL was there, as were Rod and Bette who have been coming to jam sessions since before you were born. Charly dropped in to check us out, and might bring her sax next time. Props to Annie, Mike, the Hirsch and the lads who helped pack up after a long day.

Toodlepip!
