Jazz night out

I was fortunate to accompany my wife to the annual jazz concert at her school last week.   This annual concert showcased their many jazz ensembles in a more casual and classy atmosphere.  I must say that I was impressed by the standard of these young boys – some who have only “learnt” jazz for a year or so.   Hopefully having people who danced to their playing (even though they’re mostly their parents!!!) and playing with pros like Adrian Kelly helps to inspire them more.

With a dance floor provided, we were able to do some lindyhop to swing charts that they played.  We’ve been so busy this year with work, moving house, holidays and extra curricular activities that we haven’t been able to dance much at all, so it was great to be able to dance together again at last.

I couldn’t resist taking some photos of the event as the stage, lighting and the bands provided wonderful subject matter.   Here are some shots from the night:
