Regular visitors to CJC, the Jazzmen - founded in 1972 - hail from the West Country and Hampshire. Their sound is built on the unique style of John Maddock’s clarinet playing and it is his individual sound that makes him a popular guest star in many bands.
The Jazzmen’s line up has not changed much over the years, which contributes to their cohesiveness. Always well-known for forceful and driving music that includes some seldom heard tunes in their performances, the band’s November 2011 appearance at the club also featured powerful music from the swing/mainstream era with John on saxophone.
Line-up: John Maddocks – clarinet and saxes, Peter Wilkinson - trumpet, Tony Farr - trombone, Chris Satterly - piano, Dave Broomfield - guitar and banjo, Peter McCurrie - bass and tuba, Brian Barker - drums.
Guest admission: £9.00
All meetings start at 7.45pm - doors open at 6.30pm
