chronicle: Winter 2013/2014

Lured by curry, trombone poetry flickered briefly amidst the floor singing at the JazzNights Christmas Special in Blackheath, where reedsman Bob McKay deployed his woodwind arsenal to great effect. A virtuoso violinist from the Far East failed to land, but there was a steel pan band, and more singers, among whom Anne Bryony shone brightly.

Mick Collins Modern Jazz Orchestra made room for a bout of trombone poetry at the Ivy House in Nunhead, an acclaimed live music and real ale pub now owned by the community.

There was also a trombone poetry intervention at Robert Juritz’s Jazz Jam one Sunday afternoon at the New Cross Inn, which may prove to be a regular haunt (see below).

Finally, again at the Ivy House, trombone poetry pitched in at an event promoting a co-operatively produced book, Stories for Homes , with all proceeds going to the homeless charity Shelter. Dan Maitland presided over a pick-up band and an ale-fuelled singalong.
