Well as you are witnessing, (after a lot of messing about) Chipperfield Jazz's fledgeling website is born. When Malcom Leach, Entertainments Manager of Chipperfield Clarendon CC suggested I start a Jazz Club in Chipperfield my initial reaction was lukewarm. I didn't think there were enough people interested in jazz in and around the village, but the last 3 events have proved me wrong. Thanks to all those that came and supported us last year, from all the feedback it seems lots of people are keen for us to continue, hence our next gig on the 11th April. As a jazz musician one learns to survive by continually seeking out new audiences and opportunities, and I feel in good company alongside fellow musicians Arnie Somogyi who runs Greensand Jazz in Leighton Buzzard and Clark Tracey who organises Herts Jazz. The Cricket Club kindly hosts us, which is particularly welcome as they serve the cheapest booze in the village. Please feel free to add suggestions for people you'd like to see at the club, the website or anything else connected with CJ. At the moment gigs will be every 6 weeks or so, but keep an eye on the website for some special events planned in the Summer. We hope to grow from our promising start and bring some more fantastic improvised music to the village over the next season!
