Dear Friends, There is no doubt about it for a club like ours, to keep going for forty years is a great achievement. We have survived a few ups and downs, but we keep motoring on! We have been fortunate to have so many great musicians visiting our town, and long may it continue. But, as we all know, jazz is evolving, and young musicians are coming up with fresh ideas, all the time. We hope to be welcoming some of them over the coming years, and adding new and interesting dimensions to our programme. From the point of view of organising the gigs, thanks to all our committee members, past and present, for all their hard work in keeping the show on the road. However, some of us are getting a bit long in the tooth, which means more new members would be welcome. If anyone is interested, please let me know! Finally, thanks to the Victory Club and the Everyman Theatre, for providing such great venues, which are much appreciated by members and musicians alike. Don’t forget ‘It’s the groove that makes the difference’. Best wishes to all! Gil Emery
