Jazz Appreciation
Just one meeting to report on since last
time as we had to cancel our March get
together. We had an excellent session on
February 21st led by Peter Gregory. He
selected a lively and varied programme,
starting with Woody Herman and ending
with Miles Davis. In between we had Bix
Beiderbeck, Count Basie, Herbie
Hancock, Jacques Loussier, Charlie
Parker, Duke Ellington and Dave Brubeck.
He also chose a well-known piece by
Chick Webb and Ella, Basin Street Blues,
a piece by Courtney Pine, and one by the
pianist Kate Williams (daughter of John
Williams), called Big Shoes. My favourite
of them all was Herbie Hancock’s
Watermelon Man, with whistles for the
calls of the watermelon seller. If you fancy
listening to some jazz, you can always try
Jazz Record Requests on Sunday
afternoon, Radio 3, at 4.00, or J to Z,
Saturday afternoon, radio 3 at 5.00. Until
we meet again - Happy Listening!
