The EAGLE JAZZBAND HAS PRODUCED a CD "MEMORIES" featuring our new line-up. Like most bands these days we've had gig periods of Feast & Famine. We have travelled far and wide and it has been a pleasure seeing so many old friends again. We've had some ecstatic receptions from some of our Saga and Venture Away audiences - but of course to get them you have to get the stage- presence. It can help if your'e wearing white tuxes! But when you get that response there really is no feeling like it. Jazz is a performance art, after all, and the business of "entertaining" has to lift both performer and crowd. The deep respect for the traditions of classic jazz is certainly our pleasure and we keep adding pieces to the repertoire. We hope you all enjoy our CD. Keep Jazzin!
Line-up: Matt |Palmer(reeds/leader); Peter Brown(trumpet/cornet/valve trombone);Terry Williams (trombone); Brian Mellor (banjo/guitar); Brian Lawrence (bass); Nick Ward (drums) http://meagle.co.uk
