Given, a long weekend, the great weather, the Inverloch Jazz festival, Moomba etc. was anybody going to join your correspondent at the Leinster for a jam session? Then they started to arrive.
Three guitarists, three vocalists, a drummer, a bassist, a saxophonist, and a pianist kicked off a somewhat quiet afternoon. Kaye sang a few tunes and then Geoff played his two pieces on the keys and left soon after. The surprise of the year was when Kay jumped at the opportunity to play keys and stayed there for the rest of the session. Sang no more!!! Fermin, Rob and Don ably rotated on guitars and Peter played a marathon effort on bass. Debbie and Kevin worked well on vocals and Glen drove the rhythm, as only he can, until he had to return to the bar. Then, in walked Ben, a young student of drums, who keep the percussive thing going. Rick on flute and Keith on tenor arrived later to augment the very thin horn section. To sum up…13 musicians had heaps of playing.
