“Kid Meets Sid” – A Tribute to Kid Ory and Sidney Bechet

Kid-Meets-Sid-Band1

Mike Owen and Bob Ironside Hunt are both UK Jazz giants. So back home after ten glorious years running his Bordello Bedwarmers Band and Woodland Jazz Band in Aarhus, Denmark, Mike lost no time in teaming up with Bob, Music Arranger for Chris Barber and The Big Chris Barber Band, to form their inspirational new tribute band “Kid Meets Sid” in honour of Kid Ory and Sidney Bechet.

So I considered it a huge privilege to be invited  to one of their first gigs at Tad Newton’s Jazz Club at The Walnut, Blisworth, where I seized the opportunity to be the first to video “Kid Meets Sid” for YouTube.

“Kid Meets Sid” stars: Mike Owen, trombone; Bob Ironside Hunt, soprano saxophone; Roger Heeley, piano; Roscoe Birchmore, bass; Nick Ward, drums.
