Buddy’s singing style is reminiscent of Vince Jones and Chet Baker, two of Kevin’s favourite male singers. Ann (flute) has recently recorded with Buddy for his upcoming CD. […]

Jazz Notes at Maurice’s party

Jazz Notes at Maurice’s party

The birthday party of Kevin’s long-standing friend, Maurice, was a noisy affair! So much so that few would have heard Sevil. Those who did passed very favourable (and accurate!) comments. Sevil wasn’t the only singer, that day: Maurice was joined by Neville (various guitars, piano, ukulele) and Kevin (guitar) for a few songs and then […]

Thanks to Roger Clark for inviting us to play at his iconic jazz club. For Sevil and Daniel, it was their first time at Dizzy’s and Sevil sang up a storm, under the watchful eye of Dizzy, himself. Daniel, recently arrived from Newcastle, claimed it to be his first gig at a real jazz club […]

Pippa Wilson with Jazz Notes – 21 June 2014

A great night with Pippa at the Ringwood RSL on Saturday 21 June! It was a good-sized and enthusiastic audience (at least, judging by the whooping and hollering on our recording) for dinner and the show. The music gelled well and we even managed two unrehearsed requests. There were calls for ‘one more’ even after ‘just […]
