Featuring The Stars of British Jazz

Friday 28th and Saturday 29th November 2014


 Happy jazz from happy musicians.

Just you try and stop your fingers strumming or your toes tapping!

Oh! And dancing is definitely allowed!


The “Stars of British Jazz” are:

 Colin Wood - Piano (from Acker Bilk’s Paramount Jazz Band)

John Benson - Double Bass/Vocals (ex Kenny Ball & His Jazzmen)

Richie Burns - Drums (ex Pete Allen Jazz Band)

Graham Woodhouse - Trombone/Vocals (Ex Pete Allen Jazz Band)

Mike Cotton - Trumpet (ex Acker Bilk’s Paramount Jazz Band)

Zoltan Sagi - Clarinet/Sax (ex Chris Barber Jazz Band)


The “Stars of British Jazz” recreate traditional jazz as made popular in Britain in the 1950s and 60s, which became known as “British Trad”. From this period emanated bands that dominated the British jazz scene for many years, such as the bands of Kenny Ball. Chris Barber, Acker Bilk and Humphrey Lyttelton, all of whom became highly respected on the international jazz scene - and all of whom played “live” here at the Langstone Cliff Hotel.

 With this spirit in mind, we present to you “Stars of British Jazz” - a band comprising of a mixture of past and present members of these famous bands together with younger, top class ability musicians of today, all of whom have previously worked together in various bands over the years. It is the bands intention to keep this wonderful music alive by presenting a programme performed with all the original creativity and energy of the originals.

 The eminently swinging, three piece rhythm section is complemented with a formidable front line to the highest standard of musicianship, in order to present a slick, entertaining programme, combining a cross section of traditional and mainstream jazz, non-stop entertainment that you cannot fail to enjoy. May we jog your menu with a few of the hits that became part of the “Top Twenty”

 Hits of the day? - Dance of the Siamese Children, Sukiyaki, Green Leaves of Summer, Midnight in Moscow, Petite Fleur, Aria, Stranger on the Shore - we just knew you would remember them.

 The band has a great website - where you may read “Meet the Band” notes, and of the amazing pedigree they all have. They really have played with the very top performers of their profession as well as backing some huge stars from the Pop-World. And when you hear them you will definitely understand why.

 The Maggie Reeday Trio

Maggie has had a long and varied career and will be known to all West Country Jazz afficienados. She has sang on many occasions here at the Langstone. Her easy-going style and engaging personality will be just perfect for the lunchtime session on the Saturday.
