Apologies to our vast readership for the delay in publishing this brief review.
This guitar duo produced one of the most enjoyable performances ever heard at CJC. Big Jim Sullivan, a virtuoso, and Doug Pruden, excellent in his supporting role, at times demonstrated an almost telepathic understanding. The inevitable occasional fluff simply amused them.
The words of Mike Parry, the club member responsible for the excellent photos of our events, sum up the music: ‘I thought some of their playing was great, by the time I got there they had sold out of CDs! They were not trad, not mainstream and not modern (if you know what I mean) but just swung from Django to The Simpsons via Ellington. Book them again please’.
I’m sure the Duo will be back next season. In fact Big Jim will be playing for us, as a member of the US Band, on Thursday, April 14.
