Its Getting Warmer

Newsletter 26th January 2022

The second Jam Session and judging by the turn out, the sessions are building a head of steam already

18 Musos, including a surprise appearance by Castlemaine's Philip Cheek (sax). In fact the saxes dominated for quite a while, with Roger Clark, black sax and attitude, The Captain, Michael and Keef; John Bell on trumpet adding greatly to the sound - probably their take on Freddie Freeloader (Miles Davis) was a high point.

Singer Aneta, back from the 'Z, in fine form - she and Kevin had plenty of time to shine - I Love Being Here With You (Aneta)and When Sunny Gets Blue (Kevin) two fine numbers. The Captain shone with a version of Alec Wilder's Moon and Sand, (1941) greatly enriched by some sweet piano from Lisette Payet . We won't mention the guitars, other than Mike, Roger and Fermin, of course.

Well, actually, a big But...

Or maybe an and...

Moondance! Van Morrison's signature tune - a solid rhythm section (the Hirsch, meself and Adam) put this up as a wild Irish jig, ceilihd style but were blown away by some fine violin playing from Huich - best we have ever heard from her, and that is saying something...

Highlight of the week.
