Jazz A-Z

Jazz A-Z - Group Leader: Philip Lester

This group meets on the 2nd Thursday in the month from 10.00-Noon at SWESRS. This is a very visual group as the jazz is taken from films and concerts and shown on the screen rather than just listening. Philip Lester would like to invite all members to come along and join the group. Give him a call for more information.

At the group’s meeting in November, renowned BAFTA and Emmy award winning composer, arranger, conductor and saxophonist John Altman once again visited the group and presented rare vintage videos from the American 1959 tv show The Golden Age of Jazz.
