Jazz&Jazz YouTubes Featuring The Old Hat Jazz Band at The Winning Post


“We’ve played in bars, theatres, music halls, village halls, restaurants, parties, Swing dance balls and jazz clubs to a very broad selection of people … we are playing a style of music which relates to everyone … as applicable today as it ever was.”

In my quest to post Jazz&Jazz features focusing on our fast emerging younger generation of Jazz Bands and musicians, I took in a gig at The Winning Post Jazz Club, Twickenham, recently to meet and film for Jazz&Jazz YouTubes Lizy Exell and The Old Hat Jazz Band. It was a huge pleasure to see Kay and Tony Leppard again (I still miss their Thursday Midday Gigs at The 100 Club) along with Mike Pointon, Peter Marr and Barry and Chris Price. Also my good friend, photographer Laurence Cumming, whose photos are featured in this post along with a selection of the YouTubes
I filmed on the day.

    I’m getting to think Peter, that you are putting these comic little spelling errors in your posts to see if we are paying attention ! I feel sure Miss Exell cannot be a ‘Lazy’ drummer. Norm888

  2. Peter Butler says:

    I need a sharp eye like yours, Norman. I think I’m rushing things due too much to do! Tonight I’m off to Botany Bay Jazz Club. Jonny Boston is playing.

  3. Norm888 says:

    Haven’t come across Jonny B for years – don’t think he gets up North much ! I remember him at Abersoch {what a great little festival !} playing brilliant with Adrian Cox. Maybe you will have a Youtube video out soon for us to look forward to !. Norm888

    It’s next up, Norman! Filmed him this Thursday evening at The Bay Jazz Club.
