Jazz Newsletter September 2019

Hello Folks,

Next week’s Jazz Night, Tuesday 24th September, will feature Mike Cotton, one of the club’s favourite guests. We are lucky to get Mike this month as he is away the next day on a tour of Denmark with the renowned band, ‘The Stars of British Jazz’. Stars indeed, every one of them. Mike has also been busy playing at Lords in the Ashes Test match. If the weather is fine the band are called ‘The Outswingers’ and if it’s wet they play inside and are called ‘The Inswingers’ Wonderful!

The tickets for the October concert ( Alan Barnes) will be available for purchase on Tuesday evening at the club. Alan, as I have said before is one of the world’s most respected reedsmen. I spoke to Alan yesterday and he is really excited about coming to Grayshott ( the word gets around that we are one of the most successful Jazz Clubs in the country), despite the fact that he’d just returned from a nine day tour of Norway. Who says we don’t get big names at Grayshott! Anyway tickets will be on sale at the club priced at the usual £10.
I shall be writing in more detail about the line-up for Alan’s concert in the near future.

Enjoy the jazz
Mike
