PREVIEW: Twelfth Picnic Jazz at the Pavilion, Orford, Suffolk (Sunday 3rd August) @orfordjazz

Roger Hipwell is in his twelfth year of promoting the annual jazz picnic in the grounds of a big house in Orford in Suffolk. The full history of the event is here. This year the singer – debut album work in progress with Ian Shaw – is Emma Divine. Her classy band is Sandy Suchadolski, Bass, Gail James, Drums, John Turville, Piano, and Piers Green, saxes. Roger has a spoof poster for what he thinks Orford jazz needs next year when Picnic Jazz becomes a stroppy teenager (below). Quite a sense of humour…. I think you’ve had this line before: “You are Orford, but I like you.” Here’s the 2015 poster:

  1. I think we've made it at last with a mention in LondonJazz.

    Thank you Sebastian for your help.

    I'm liking the alliteration of next year's event more and more but not sure the Orford regulars are quite ready. We've had to re-introduce portaloos this year for some of our older ones.
