From Not Your Usual Correspondent
With your usual correspondent, Taariq, strolling around Wilson’s Promontory, the word master, Ted, still on his way to a successful recovery from a little hiccup in his health and the sun shining brilliantly on a long weekend….was anybody going to attempt to play jazz at the Leinster?
Arrived to find Doug (bass) helping Glen (drums) to set up the gear. Soon followed by Kay (vocals and keyboard), Kevin, (vocals) and Fermin (guitar). They were joined by the guy who occasionally appears with his banjo. Started off without drums until Sebastian arrived with sticks in hand..
Then others appeared like magic. Peter (bass) Ben (guitar), Paddy (guitar), John (keyboard), Geof (keyboard), Mike (drums), Frank (Alto), Alan (Tenor and percussion), and Tony (Tenor)
Soon we knew the answer to the above question……. many people were prepared to forgo a sunny autumn day on a holiday weekend to indulge themselves in playing jazz in a kinky little pub somewhere in Collingwood.
