Ken Colyer New Orleans Revivalist Jazz Back Where It Belongs – At The 100 Club

The Ken Colyer Legacy New Orleans Jazz Band

On my Facebook Jazzers Group I recently posted:  “Glorious session of pure revivalist jazz at The 100 Club today (Thursday 20th, June) with THE KEN COLYER LEGACY NEW ORLEANS JAZZ BAND. Besides the band, I met up with a bunch of musicians and jazzers I’ve not seen for a while.” 

“Special thanks yet again to Kay and Tony Leppard for their hard work and dedication in running the Thursday lunchtime sessions.”

If only they could continue beyond this year!

Only one problem, in my rush to get away that morning after last minute phone calls I forgot to grab the camera! But fellow jazz photographer Laurence Cumming took photos and promised to send them to me to display on Jazzers. So here they are – and, Laurence, they are great photos, so I’d welcome future photos covering jazz gigs from you for inclusion on Jazz&Jazz. Always good to have a top rate “second string”!

Not only did Laurence take photos at The 100 Club that day. He went on to take photos of a Jazz Marching Band in Covent Garden. Post soon to follow.
