Every evening after I’d performed in London, I’d get in a taxi and rush round to catch the last set at Ronnie’s, or the Pizza on the Park, the Pheasantry, Crazy Coqs – anywhere to hear the exquisite sounds of Blossom Dearie, Dave Frishberg, Marion Montgomery, Joe Pass, Cleo Lane, Steve Ross, and so many others…that dissonant chord, that pure, high note, the precise timing of a phrase or word, the expectant silence, the tears, the laughter – there’s nothing like a great jazz artist performing in a moody, broody venue, entrancing the enwrapped audience. The lamp-lit intimacy, shoulders rubbing shoulders, the buzz of anticipation, a large glass of red wine and,
“Ladies and Gentlemen, we’re pleased to introduce…”
Burrough Jazz brings that magic to this wonderful part of Leicestershire.
