Twickenham Jazz Club's Past Gigs

Tribute To the Great Jazz Swing Era

It will certainly be there when our swinging band plays on Wednesday night at Twickenham Jazz Club, their amazing vitality, musicality, energy and spirit, will simply make you feel happy.

Think Duke Ellington, Benny Goodman, Count Basie and the amazing positivity of much of the music of the 1930s and 40s.

What is Swing? some of you may ask. Wikipedia calls it “a strong grooved drive” Collins dictionary “popular music influenced by Jazz” in fact it is impossible to define the indefinable but like happiness, you know it when it’s there and you know when it is absent.

The Band:

Mike Henry – Trumpet,

John Cherry – Trombone,

Martin Nickless – Clarinet,

Graham Read – Bass,

Rod Brown – Drums.
