England v France rugby cancelled

Dear member

Just in case any of you haven’t heard, tomorrow’s England v France rugby game has been cancelled due to a typhoon so the Club will now open at 11:00 as usual. Congratulations to England who top their pool and progress to a Quarter Final game at 08:15 on Saturday the 19th October, our opponents will be announced once the remaining Pool D games are completed but are likely to be Australia. The Club will be open for the game.

Regards
Andy Smith
Club Secretary

Jazz Newsletter October 2019

Hello Folks,

I can confirm the Temperance Seven date at the club – Thursday 14th November. Tickets will be on sale at the Alan Barnes Concert next Tuesday 15th October.

Alan Barnes has a string of notable credits to his name after studying at Leeds College of Music in the late seventies. He cut his teeth early on with the Midnight Follies and The Pasadena Roof Orchestra. Both of whom (having had experience with them myself) were full of hard-bitten jazzers who took no prisoners. In 1988 Alan was invited to join the Humphrey Lyttelton Band to fill the chair vacated by Bruce Turner. Always working with the cream of British Jazz, especially pianist David Newton, Alan recorded several albums. Such is Alan’s musical versatility he has appeared as a session musician on albums by Selina Jones, Björk, Van Morrison and Bryan Ferry. His television and film tracks include The Tetley Bitter adverts featuring him on solo baritone sax.

As part of Alan’s quartet will be Robin Aspland on piano. Robin’s from across the Pennines from Alan and is in huge demand as an accompanist to the like of Clair Martin, Curtis Stigers, Anita Wardell and actress Jane Horrocks on her album “The Further Adventures of Little Voice”.

Matt Home, drummer also studied at Leeds College of Music and in 1999 moved to London and soon began playing with many of the leading musicians in Britain and Europe. His recording credits include albums with Stacey Kent, Ray Gelato, Karen Sharp, Dave Cliffe and many more. Current projects include the Brandon Allen Quartet with whom he regularly appears at Ronnie Scott’s Club and Nigel Price Trio with whom he has had a ten year collaboration.

Completing the line-up for the evening is bassist Andrew Cleyndert. Born in Birmingham Andrew’s first gigs were with the Tony Mann Trio in Manchester backing artists such as Pete King and Art Farmer. Moving to London he soon got absorbed into the jazz scene playing with Bud Shank, Red Rodney. Along with Alan, Andrew is among this year’s nominations in the British Jazz Awards.

I’m looking forward to the evening and I hope we will give this unique quartet a big Grayshott welcome!
Mike

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
