Max Collie Memorial Jazz Session at The 100 Club, Courtesy of Trevor Arnold!

This is sheer brilliance, kind courtesy of Trevor Arnold, especially as I was so distraught that
I couldn’t be there.

“Video highlights of Max Collie Memorial Jazz Session on the 8th June 2018 at the
100 Club in Oxford Street. A large audience and musicians attended the club
to honour Max Collie who sadly passed away earlier this Year. I hope you
enjoy the most exciting bits of an excellent day. My thanks to Chez Chesterman who 
organised the Band. I’m still trying to come down to earth!

I’m so glad I had let my jazz friends know about my predicament and that Trevor sent me this YouTube. A million thanks, Trevor, and after watching the YouTube I too am struggling to come back down the earth, because, yes, I enjoyed every second of “the most exciting bits”! Trouble is, it makes me all the more aggrieved that I couldn’t get there. It would have been the first time since Kay and Tony Leppard’s Thursday Lunchtime Sessions came to an end.

Take a look at all of trev’s jazz sometime.

    Great video from Trevor Arnold and a chance to thank all the musicians and the 100 club and especially Chez Chesterman Max Collies first trumpet player in the UK for their fine work.

    Tell Trevor he has to take up the trumpet again.

    Martin, thank you for honouring Jazz&Jazz with your comment. I have been privileged to feature several posts about Max here on Jazz&Jazz, including my photo of him at Ramsgate Seaside Shuffle back in 2010 – after which I was able to spend 30 wonderful minutes in personal conversation with him.
