But their repertoire isn’t only based on Bix. It also features Rhythm ’n’ Blues, Spirituals and Gospel numbers and evocative tunes from the golden era of jazz from 1900 to 1960, “including songs by Cole Porter, Irving Berlin and Walter Donaldson.”

What better band to delight Ramsgate Seaside Shuffle fans after the highly successful July Festival.

    Should be well worth a visit despite the quality of the video sound, very controlled and of course a 12 Bar blues always gets em! going, As a fellow musician and recording engineer, I do hope the balance is better live so many bands stand up there and “Blast” away not listening to their fellows around them, as Les Paul observed, if you can’t hear what the other fellow is doing you are playing too loud, and its a discipline sadly lacking in some of the best bands around.

    That’s jazz, Roger, great fun but you are right. This was recorded at Sutton Jazz Club – don’t know by who. But at least such YouTubes give fans a glimpse of the bands they are going to see at their clubs.

  3. rogerallen says:

    Sound is what music is about a good still is possible just as good, but bad sound is destructive, it is with sadness that I find after a lifetime in film, video and photography and audio the majority are oblivious of quality due to the somewhat suspect technology that promises to make everyone a technician. Not a subject that I would want to continue, but if I am recording a Band or a musician it is nearly always taken that their inadequacies can be solved by technology. Guess that is where we are. However your site does a good job in promoting Jazz so well done in that respect.

  4. Peter Butler says:

    Roger, I agree with your thoughts but have to add it’s all to do with the age we live in. I’ve listened to your Seaside Shuffle recordings and they are very good. I’m busy transferring video I took at Fest Jazz in Brittany to YouTubes right now because apparently and amazingly mine are better than their technicians have achieved. Then I will be producing more YouTubes of the Seaside Shuffle Festival bands and posting them on Jazz&Jazz. We could post your recordings alongside them if you wish. Then fans could watch their bands and afterwards listen to how they should sound.
