Too cool for school.....


It wasn't that easy to get the perfect shot down in the cellar but I'm going with 'it's jazz man' there's nothing straight about jazz :) The Corner House Jazz Band have been playing together for...a long time, they groove along as smoothly as the 1929 Denis Fire Engine that they own and drive in street parades. The audience ranged from mid twenties through to seventy +, the majority believe it or not being the former.  It was fantastic to see so many young people swing dancing to the traditional style jazz. While googling the buzz :) I found this short video where Roy Burton (trombonist) tells us how The Jazz Cellar came about, lateral thinking at it's best! I can see now why it's so popular..and yeh, we will be digging it again.. Hope your week has started well, little bit of rain here in Perth but not enough..happy Tuesday, take care and stay safe.....

  10. I love the fact that it's real jazz Grace, not modern jazz, which I never could warm to. When I visit Perth, feel free to take me there. You captured the place beautifully by the way.

  12. I can see * la fête de la musique* spred world wise. Created by Jacques Lang in Paris, few years ago. He had a joyfull idea.
    I love jazz ! One day with a friend, we would like to go to Zurich, from Lausanne hich iking ( ? ), to go to a jazz festival. In that time, many years ego, I did' nt have car, and no match money to take the train. Walking along a street in the city to go up, outside from Lausanne on the route direction, we met friends. * Where are you going ? * * To Zurich jazz festival* *But, it is next week !!!! *

    No comment !

  14. A lot of history in those faces.

    I love jazz... we've got a festival that started up this weekend again. For some inexplicable reason Willie Nelson was heading up a concert night.

  19. Gee you get to some fab places Grace. What impresses me about this venue is that the age of the jazz fans ranged from twenties to seventy +. Great to hear about an activity that crosses the generations.

  21. You made some pretty good photos, must have been rather dark and crowded.

  22. Must have been a fantastic event!
    Wish I could have been there.

  23. It is great to see these oldies still belting out a tune. It must give them heaps of pleasure especially to see young people enjoying their music.

  24. That's my kind of music and my kind of place! Superb photos. Thanks!

  25. It looks like it was a fun (and loud) evening.

  26. Nice images, Grace. It sure looks like you enjoyed the goings on. Even though I am usually a pro-color guy, I have to say that your monochrome photos were among the nicest images here.

  27. I don't listen to Jazz, but it's always fun to see musicians in action.

  28. I'm listening to jazz in background and the music seemed perfectly timed as I scrolled down! I love the mood and everyone enjoying themselves - those musicians look perfect in b&w too!

    God bless you!
