Around 1960 I was a great fan of two student bands, the Michael Garrick Quartet and James Kellas and the Sax Section. Garrick, of course, went on to become a big star, whereas Kellas had other fish to fry and never became a full-time musician.

The Album "Kronos" on the Hep label (also on Spotify) has both these bands and is well worth hearing. There is also a Gearbox album by the Garrick band called "Silhouette" which was recorded live in the music room of the University Of London Union in 1958. I was in the audience, would you believe. Their performance of Willow Weep For Me has stayed fresh in my mind for more than 50 years, and I don't mind admitting that hearing it again brought tears to my eyes.

I liked trad. jazz. Acker Bilk, OK, and for some reason, after all these years, Bob Wallis and his Storeyville Jazzmen have come to mind. Much better than GrinAcker. Saw them at a local working mens' club in the mid 1960s, and they were fabulous. Must have a look on ebay, etc., to try and find out more and get some records.

Dusty on BBC4. Words not necessary. Blues Brothers eat your hearts out.

Agree Dave. She's brilliant. There are some crackin' female singers about but can't forget me old faves. Smile
Thanks for the link, I forgot to check this out. And totally suited the film too.

As in Dusty Springfield, I get reminded of her every day cutting through the grave yard.

What have I JUST listened to, whilst passing through the sitting room," Family Fortunes." One of the wife's favourite quiz programmes, lord help us. The question was " What bird has long legs ? " They were flummoxed on TV, so I interjected, " A bloody kiwi." Reply from my beloved, " It hasn't. It has a long beak." I give up at my attempts at humour, and wondering what has happened to this world.TongueWinkGrin
