Last night I went along to Olney Jazz Club for my monthly visit with my friend and cycling buddy Cyril. This month we were royally entertained by Richard Exalls Shooting Stars. Three members of the band play with the Chris Barber Band and another with The Pasadena Roof Orchestra so if you are of a certain age you will know what kind of music it was.
It was a great evening which I thoroughly enjoyed, great entertainment. The music was more traditional type jazz ranging from Louis Armstrong and Louis Jordan through to the aforementioned Chris Barber, Kenny Ball, who recently sadly passed away and Acker Bilk. A very lively and fun evening.
I was also able to glean some interesting information from my beer glass while waiting for the music to start…
An education as well as entertainment.. What more could you ask ?
