Another wonderful afternoon of music with the return of Black Cat Jazz to Music on the Levels. Swinging marching songs, doleful blues, deep spirituals, comic numbers and a unique jazz rendition of the Taizé Hear My Prayer all added up to a great experience for the record crowd on Sunday.
Line-up from left: Peter Winterhart, drummer; Tom Whittingham, trombone and euphonium; Sarah Thatcher, banjo and guitar; Spike Kennedy, double bass; Steve Graham, trumpet and vocals; Hugh Roberts, clarinet, alto sax.
