ï»¿NEW ORLEANS BRASS BAND
Once again, the fair borough of Richmond will be carried back fifty years, and across three thousand miles, when a New Orleans marching band plays the Pied Piper to Sundays visitors. The New Teao Brass Band,
led by trumpeter Keith Smith provides the bulk of the band: Barry
Martyn (bs dr), John Defferary (alto), Bill Cole (sousa), Ken Saunders (ten), Colin Bowden (snares). Ken Colyer, the leader without whom no festival of British Jazz would be complete, breaks into his holiday to march with the band, and Chris, Pat Halcox and Ian Wheeler from the Barber band, fresh from their march with the Eureka Brass Band in Washington, rush from a T.V. rehearsal in Wood Green to participate in this unique event.
The march commences at 1.15 p.m. from Petersham Road car park then proceeds through the town into the grounds.
FESTIVAL BIG BAND
British jazz, as developing in the Barber camp, and the Lyttelton camp, could, it is possible, become a unified direction in jazz. On Saturday, between the Mainstream and Traditional sets, on the Main Arena stage, Messrs. Barber and Lyttelton will be joining forces, with their bands, to provide
one of the most exciting experiments in contemporary jazz. The mutual respect which the leaders and side-men of the two bands have for each other is well known in the jazz scene. It will be interesting to see and hear how the combination of the best in British non-modern jazz talents works.
THE TRADE FAIR
All visitors will want to call at the âSceneâ tent where many jazz personalities such as Dudley Moore and Steve Race will be in residence. This looks like a little festival of jazz all on its own! The âGiles display should interest record buyers. There are some very pleasant bargain offers being made by these people and this could be the great âautographâ point.
You can buy each and every jazz publication and music paper at Pick-stockâs News Tent, while Coca Cola. Wallsâ Hot Dogs, Lyonâs Ice Cream and Lovettâs Refreshment tents will be well stocked. Look out for the free cigarettes â âGuardsâ no less. Then, lastly, thereâs the âJazz Club Information Tentâ run by Klooks Kleek, Richmond, Albermarle and other local jazz clubs.

The startling rise of interest in R & B with a rhythmic, South-Chicago styled appeal, has been the most recent phenomenon of the British jazz scene. So, as a last minute addition we present Alexis Kornerâs Rhythm and Blues Incorporated. Listen or dance to the kind of earthy, vigorous music which he has been presenting at the West End s Marquee Jazz Club and the further-west Ealing Jazz Club.
