“Jazz at the Manor, the current incarnation of a west London Sunday lunchtime big band gig which has been running for decades, was in danger of coming to an end as the promoters had decided to call it a day. Thankfully pianist Graeme Taylor has stepped up to the plate and the gigs are set to continue for the foreseeeable future.
My gig there on Feb 10th (to mark my 50th birthday!) was going to be a farewell to the gig that launched my first London based big band in 1995. Now however it is just a celebration of being 50, 30 years of big band leading and the continuation of a precious venue featuring big band jazz.”
