With their versatile mixture of New Orleans music and other traditional jazz favourites, the Savannah Jazz Band made a triumphant return to CJC on Friday 4 March.
Their infectious sound and lively interpretations of early jazz classics proved, once again, that theirs is a winning formula to warm and entertain a very large audience on a cold night in Chichester.
It was a delight to have this northern-based, constantly-touring band at the Club and when Bill reached for his harmonica and Brian his keyboard, the bluesy edge to their music reached an extra dimension.
Line-up: Bill Smith - cornet, harmonica, vocals. Brian Sam Ellis trombone, keyboard. Roger Myerscough clarinet, saxophone, vocals. Chris Marney banjo, vocals. Tony Pollitt bass. John Meehan drums, leader.
