Ambassadors: Louis Armstrong and Fats Waller Tribute Louis
and Fats Waller only worked together twice but, nevertheless, the
latter’s music so impressed Armstrong that, in 1955, he put out
one of his best known records: Satch Plays Fats: The Music of Fats
Waller. ‘Honeysuckle Rose’, ‘Squeeze Me’,
Ain’t Misbehavin’ etc live on as some of the most performed
jazz standards. Mal Jennings
(Trumpet/Vocals) and his group will also
bring to life other titles popularised by Louis Armstrong. The rest of
the group are Bill Mcallister (Trombone),
Bruce (Piano), Murray Wilkins
(Bass) and Bob Appleyard
The session will also include a special guest spot by the fantastic
female close harmony group Broadband.
Garry Lee/ Danny Moss Jr Quintet with
Brenda Lee - Garry Lee’s versatility on Vibraphone and
Guitar allows the group to capture the styles of both Milt Jackson and
Wes Montgomery. Danny Moss Jr
(Bass) brings yet another dimension, having worked both in the Studio
and on the Golf Course with Ray Brown! Brenda
Lee (Vocals) comes with a promise of ‘passion and quiet
sophistication’, and an impressive list of previous local,
national and international appearances on the jazz scene; we welcome
her debut at the Club. The other talented players are Ookii Effendi (Piano) and Gavin Kerr (Drums).
Graham Wood Quintet - The entire
jazz community is delighted that Graham Wood (Piano) has beaten a rare
and aggressive cancer in the form of Cholangiocarcinoma. The title
track, ‘Remembrance’, on his latest CD, Graham Wood Trio +2
Remembrance, was written as a requiem for his Father who died in 2011.
In Graham’s own words: ‘it might have been my own
requiem’. Happily, after a challenging and courageous recovery,
Graham is able to continue playing his cutting edge contemporary and
original jazz with fellow master jazz musicians Jamie Oehlers (Saxophone), Simon Jeans (Guitar), Ben
(Drums) and Nick Abbey (Bass).
Many of us will want to welcome Graham and his Quintet back to the Club.
Blue Monk with Joyce Mathers –
This ensemble plays an eclectic range of well-rehearsed music in the
jazz idiom. In their own words: ‘quintessential jazz standards
and contemporary classics’. No doubt there will also be exciting
new material from their recent CD launch. Leader Kim Anning (Guitar/Vocals) will be
joined by their regular and versatile vocalist Joyce Mathers. Phil Hatton (Reeds), Manoli Vouyoucalos (Bass) and Toby Anning (Drums) complete the
line-up. Also, making a particularly welcome appearance will be
well-known Violin maestro Ashley
Arbuckle. Ashley, after a distinguished orchestral career, is
equally at home playing jazz with his consummate control of the
