JOHN MERRYDOWN behind
THE JAZZ SCENE
ONLY one trad entry
made its appearance at
the Finals of the Inier-
University Jazz Contest
held last week at Queen
Mary College, and that not
part of the contest proper.
Instead, there came three
Big Bands, one of nineteen
pieces, two piano trios,
and quintets to make up
the total of ten entries.
A few things stood out
to me.
Firstly, I didn’t hear one
rhythm section all night
which achieved or main-
tained even a steady, let
alone swinging tempo, and
almost all the drummers
demonstrated all the well
known faults, rigidity,
lack of time-keeping and
so on.
Secondly, the piano
players to a man were just
plain boring. And thirdly,
that the bulk of the ‘'band”
soloists were basically ill-
equipped to do so. 1 was
of big band numbers,
things like “Bop Look and
Listen” (after all these
years) and “How High the
Moon” took me right back.
I liked the Campbell-
Wheeler Quintet’s (Bir-
mingham) choice of San-
dy’s “Portrait of Willie
Best” and “Train and tfie
River”, also the sound of
the two French horns in
the Liverpool entry.
But, as last year, the
absolutely stand-out mu-
sicianship and judges’
choice came from Cam-
bridge, Dave Geliy, Art
Themen (tenors), Lionel
Grigson (a sensitive trum-
pet player, who only needs
a little more projection)
and John Hart (bass). For
conviction and control this
group left the rest stand-
ing. There was also a
guitarist of some persona-
lity in the first 'Leeds)
group. But the rest seemed
to be lumbered before they
got started by the rhythm
sections — and the atro-
cious amplification must’ve
added its own problem to
what has proved the big-
gest problem in British
jazz — just plain swinging.
Maybe the British should
stick to Trad. Or, as Min-
gus would say, to marches
and polkas!
rT' HEN there was the re-
tired jazz musician who
named his house “Dunra-
vin”.
AT a time when several
jazz club promoters
are shaking their heads
despondently over decrea-
sing attendance figures and
laying plans for a quick
switch to Twist, three en-
terprising gents have made
a bold move which could
do jazz a lot of good.
Last week, J:m Godbolt
opened his “Gaff’ at the
Green Man, Blackheath,
and lo and behold found
a 100 yard queue of fans
eager to participate in the
proceedings. And not for
Acker, Chris or Kenny had
they come. They came to
support such “uncommer-
cial” names as Bruce Tur-
ner, Al Fairweather, Sandy
Brown and Tony Coe.
The Gaff is likely to be a
major stepping stone in the
trans'tion which is gently
stirring up on the jazz
scene. Jim has devoted
much attention to provid-
ing the right atmosphere.
The excellent P. A. system,
good ligh.ing and decora-
tions will contr bute grea-
tly to the success of this
club.
The previous day, Brian
Delorme and Len Bunch
opened their “Jazzlands” in
Birmingham. With a seven
night a week policy, plenty
of atmosphere and a bar,
th is cellar club will provide
Midlands jazz fans with a
much-needed jazz rendez-
vous.
Wimbledon Palais’ first
monthly Jazz Band Ball was
not nearly so successful as
the shindigs over at Ham-
mersm'th. Despite the at-
traction of an international
bill (Papa Bue, Melbourne
Jazz Band) the ballroom
was less than half full. Per-
haps it needs the pulling
power of one of the three
B’s, Barber, Bilk, or Ball to
spark off interest in affairs
of th s size. We looked in
at Hammersmith for last
week’s J.B.B. to find a
bandroom strewn with
saxophones and guitars. Ah
well, the wind of change!
O O.S. to East Anglian jazz
^•fans. Could someone
prevail upon trumpet-player
Del Turner to pop up to
London for an occasional
blow. For many months
now we’ve been hearing
glowing reports of this
young jazzman, but his ap-
pearances on the London
jazz scene seem to be non-
-existent. We’ve spoken to
people who rate him as
“great”, “dazzling”, “bril-
liant”. It seems high time
he looked in at Ronnie
Scott’s, the Flamingo or the
Marquee
