reported by Michael Barker. A great night was had by all at the Village Hall when a full house of enthusiastic music lovers was treated to an exciting and entertaining programme of big band jazz courtesy of The Jazz Project Big Band.
The band, led from the drum kit by Adrian Bashford, and MC’d by the urbane Mike Hatchard at the keyboard, ran through a varied repertoire of old and new numbers with great panache and musicality. Their ensemble work and solos were of the very highest calibre and were greatly appreciated by all in the hall.
The bar also did lively business and I’m sure all present, audience and band, are hoping that The Jazz Project will be back at the Village Hall in the near future.
