Jazz Diary updated 13th January 2018
 

Wed 10 Jan 2018 at our new venue Abridge
Hugh Rainey


Hugh Rainey Jazz Band plus Carol Braithewaite

Hugh Rainey-trumpet, Les Handscombe-trombone, Brian Hart-clarinet & tenor sax, Tim Huskisson-keyboard & clarinet, Ollie Benson-banjo & guitar, Derek Pring-bass, Johnny Baker-drums.
Hearing Hugh Rainey lay down a strong melodic trumpet lead for his Jazz Band, it isn’t surprising that his group has numbered among the most entertaining in all British jazz for so many years. Of the seven-piece band visiting Abridge on the 10th, Les, Brian, Derek and Johnny have all been regular members since the millennium with, more recently, Ollie Benson taking over on banjo and guitar, and the superb Tim Huskisson playing keyboard and doubling on clarinet.
And by special request, guest Carol Braithewaite will be singing to us.
Altogether Hugh remains one of our great British jazzmen, leading one of the great British jazz bands. RC 2/01/2015
If you were unable to get in due to a packed house, we're sorry, lost count of how many there were, but it was almost standing room only.
But it was a smashing evening, the band played well and Carol sung some lovely songs as she always does. Long may it carry on

Wed 24th Jan

T J Johnson


T J Johnsons Jazz & Blues Band

TJ Johnson and His Band

Not to be missed.











Wed 14th Feb
George Tidiman


George Tidiman & his Allstars

George Tidiman– trombone. Denny Islett – trumpet; Tim Huskisson – clarinet; Bob Allbut – banjo & vocals; Johnny Sirett – bass; Bill Finch – drums 

A popular figure, George is very pro- Kid Ory orientated but the band plays a wide variety of Jazz with lots of humour and vocals thrown in an increasingly rare opportunity to hear Tim Huskisson 's superb clarinet playing' as he appears with many other bands but more usually on piano these days . Dave Dyer
Even when you’ve heard them before, George Tidiman’s jokes are hilarious – and the jazz is great too, with the peerless front line duo of Denny Islett and Tim Huskisson joining the leader’s Kid Ory-Style trombone.
An entertaining evening to be enjoyed!


Wed 28th Feb
Lizzie Exell


Lizzie Exell and her Old Hat Jazz Band

Louis Thomas-double bass, Lizzie Exell- drums, Mike Soper-trumpet, Andrew Oliver-keyboard, Will Scott-reeds.

Last seen at the Kings Oak High Beech in August 2016 they made a good impression, and we welcome them back at our new venue.
Old Hat Jazz Band continues the tradition of crafting music with a hot and swinging approach from favourite tunes of the 1920s and 30s and their own compositions in the style. Featuring some of the finest musical talent London has to offer and combining the quintessential sound of the 20s and 30s with originality and characterful musicianship, Old Hat Jazz Band enjoys playing for dancers and listening music lovers wherever they are invited.


Wed 14th Mar Change of Band
Mike Barry


Mike Barry & his Uptown Gang

Mike Barry-trumpet, Mike Holt-trombone, Goff Dubber- clarinet & saxes, John Stuart-banjo & guitar, Roger Curphey-bass, Graham Collicott-drums

Always a firm favourite at Chigwell (I’ve heard them there 20 times! – Ray), The Uptown Gang make their first visit to Abridge so, with veteran trumpet maestro Mike blowing as well as ever, an exhilarating evening of jazz classics is guaranteed.

IMPORTANT PLEASE NOTE
To all members that have yet to renew Subs, collection will now only take place on Jan 10th and will be £8 combined entry and subs for the year, this puts existing members on the same footing as the Special offer to attract new members.
To all members who have already paid subs , They will have free entry on this night and will therefore be getting essentially the same deal , on showing their card signed by me .. This move has been engendered by a member who felt that I was being unfair to you all and he/she should receive your thanks.( I only hope that you all, like we, pray that this very expensive evening is a huge success in terms of attendance or someone will lose a large sum of money) Guess Who ?
