Having played in many London-based bands, Chris Walker moved to Hampshire in 1969 and quickly became a busy musician and bandleader.
In 1987 he formed the Swingtet, with its music predominantly rooted in the rich vein of 30s and 40s swing. The band has flourished, with tonight’s musicians being very experienced not only in swing but also more widely in jazz and other fields.
Tonight’s pianist, Pete Godfrey, a regular in the Swingtet’s cruise liner band, will be greatly admired by his many CJC followers for his appearances with Danny Moss, Mike Piggott, Katie Brown and Karen Sharp, and Cuff Billett and Amy Roberts.
