Jam – What Jam?

Updated: Sep 29, 2021

Made memorable by Mark's parachute jump: bonkers

Well, who needs a bass player anyway? Or a drummer? I cannot remember the last time a jam session stuck so resolutely to the upper register, but no matter, we had an afternoon of singers – Miss H, Miss K, Miss Amy, Miss Smiff, I think I have missed everyone, other than Scott and Buddy…. Whatever, Miss Smiff played drums most of the afternoon, in a manner that goes a long way to explaining why the music was so good: especially when the Captain called fours and she managed the percussive equivalent of raising two fingers. More eloquent than elegant.

...

By way of diversion, Mark was showing edited highlights of his recent parachute jump between numbers. I have always though (fondly) that several of the jam sessions regulars were slightly demented, but Mark is now officially an out and out lunatic, with the video to prove it. Strewth! TW
