Monday 9 February 2015 One More Time gave us a lively evening full of uplifting numbers including Amore, written in 1941, Rosetta from 1928 a New Orleans song, and I Cried for You with a great drum and double bass section.
The band were:
Max Emmons – Trumpet and vocals
Peter Smith – Alto Sax and Clarinet
Mike Pointon – Trombone and vocals
Damian Murphy – Electric Piano
Michael Godwin – Double Bass
Dave ‘Pumphouse’ Evans – Drums
I asked the band members what music they enjoyed listening to:
Max likes this style of jazz, rock and roll, bebop, swing and freeform, he spent 20 years of his life playing as blues clubs. He enjoys New Orleans Folk Jazz where the music isn’t read from notes but listened to so you can pick up how the music is played and the differences in styles. He loves all music including Opera and regularly listens to the live performances from The Met in New York.
Join us next time on Monday 9 March at Griffin Park when West London Rhythm Kings will be playing.
