Jazz Appreciation

We enjoy recorded jazz of all eras and styles, via CD, DVD, YouTube downloads etc. Topics have included The Blues, Guitar Men, West Coast Jazz and a DVD of the Stan Getz Quartet in concert.

And we have had a LIVE JAZZ EVENT, featuring Gareth Williams and the Class Act Quartet!

Meetings are held in the excellent acoustics of the Buckingham Room at The Chantry, at 2.00pm (NOTE CHANGE OF TIME!) on the third Monday of the month. We charge £2 max to cover room hire, and provide tea/coffee and biscuits during the interval.

Our sound system can play music from every digital source now and in the foreseeable future. It sounds really good, too!

Meetings are open to ALL U3A members, so whether you are a jazz fan already or just curious to know more, you are very welcome to drop in.

Contact Bob Gray on 885290 or by email to Jazz Appreciation.
