Concorde to Gateshead in four days

Back now from an excellent short tour with members of the Buck Clayton Legacy Band and Gwyneth Herbert. All the concerts went really well, with lovely singing from Gwyn and such fine playing from the band I had to keep reminding myself to go on playing and not stop to listen! The Peggy Lee songs went down a storm with the chance to re-evaluate several of them, of which What’s New and It’s Been a Long Long Time came out as my favourites, or as the lyricists for Life is For Livin; would have said, my “Faves”.

The band in Eastleigh with Robert Fowler guesting on alto.
