A happy, jazzy New Year to all our readers!

 

In this celebratory year (the Club’s 20th anniversary) it’s hoped that it is as successful

as previous years.

 

Friday31st January; :Ken Mathieson’s Classic Jazz Orchestra: the January

Appearance of Ken’s band at the Club in January has become something of a tradition. This is an eight piece band that has the power and swing of much bigger bands. Do you want to listen to the music of the great jazz masters – Morton, Ellington, Louis et al, or do you

want to dance – quick-steps, foxtrots, swing ? Whatever – this is your band. Go to

You Tube or www.classicjazzorchestra.org.uk

Friday 21st February: Ali Affleck’s Red Hot Rhythmakers; on this Friday, the Club is

being taken over by the Jazz Festival as part of a Scottish Jazz Weekend. The featured

group is Ali’s all female band, the only one in Scotland. Ali is an award winning jazz vocalist and has appeared at the Club on several occasions.

Friday 27th March: The Storyville All Stars: making a welcome return to the Club, this band is ever popular with dancers and listeners alike. The band is an occasional amalgamation of two well known Dundee based outfits – the East Coast Jazz Band and Havana Swing. A great band for dancing

Swing Dancers: it is good to see the many swing dancers that appear regularly at the Club. These dancers, mostly young, are very popular and, I’m sure, make many of the older Club members wish they were young again. Not only are the young dancers most welcome, they are also doing much to keep ‘The Music’ ongoing. Well done!

The Edinburgh Jazz ‘n’ Jive Club is the only club in Edinburgh where you will hear

live, traditional jazz on a regular basis. So, come along and help to keep it that way.

 

If you have never been to the Club or haven’t visited for a while, why not come

along  one Friday evening and bring your friends, relations, work colleagues and

anyone else you can think of. A great place for a social get together.
