Tad Newton’s “Jazz At The Bedford” presentation of Barry Palser’s Super Six Jazz Band celebrating “Dixieland to The Duke” was an enormous success with all seats fully booked in advance! (Apologies to late comers who couldn’t buy tickets at the door).

Led by Barry on trombone and vocals the band were true to their word, delivery an array of numbers from that great era of jazz. With fantastic musicians like John Crocker (sax and clarinet, vocals, ex Chris Barber Band), Alan Gresty (trumpet and vocals, ex Monty Sunshine Band), Harvey Weston (bass, ex Alex Welsh Band), and Tony Pitt (banjo, ex Kenny Ball, Terry Lightfoot Bands) and Barry’s own dynamic drummer, John Tyson, the gig brought the house down with rapturous applause.

Jazz&Jazz was at The Bedford and can vouch for an evening the likes of which are treasured by rapturous fans. Jazz&Jazz videos were taken at the event, but given our current workload covering jazz, they have yet to be processed for YouTube.

During the evening, however, in introducing Bix Beiderbecke’s Davenport Blues, Barry mentioned a Jazz&Jazz YouTube of his band performing the number earlier at The Peartree Jazz Club. So as a preview to a full report on the Jazz at The Bedford sell out, it is featured here, especially as, due to the crush of fans, it wasn’t so easy to film it at The Bedford.

However, YouTubes successfully take at The Bedford will be featured in a later post.
