Keyboard Virtuoso Craig Milverton “Remembers April”

Craig’s dynamic keyboard solo “I’ll Remember April” with The Bateman Brothers Jazz Band at Olney Jazz Club in November, 2015.

Filming live at gigs doesn’t afford opportunities for “Take Two” reshoots and I have discarded many of my movies which, for one reasonor another, fell fractionally short of perfection – not on the part of the musicians but due to the cameraman. In this number, Craig’s keyboard virtuosity is brilliant, even though I marginally clipped the beginning as I focused my magic lens.

So this movie qualifies as one of my “If only Take Two” YouTubes and very worthily so!

    I noticed in the full list British Jazz Awards 2015 that Tipitina, from Preston Lanc’s., achieved fourth in the ‘Small Groups’ caregory. When Tipitina played for ‘Heysham Heritage Hall’ Jazz, a couple of years back, Craig, Chris and Tom formed the rhythm section, and what a session that was ! Tom Hill dropped in some Slam’ Stewart stuff through the bass, which brought back some great memories to us oldies of the great Lionel Hampton era. Norman
