MESSAGE OF THANKS FROM ROY.
26 June 2014
The presentation of wine and flowers to Mary and I after the organ trio concert took us completely by surprise and I would like to thank you all, not only for the gifts, but for the wonderful support you have given me over the years.
As announced at the concert we have a full programme up to 7th January 2015 and after that date I will be relinquishing my duties regarding bookings etc with Stratford Jazz.
From September the management at No.1 will take on the running of Stratford Jazz and I will be on hand until January to assist with various matters including emceeing, reviews etc.
What happens after January 2015 is not clear at this stage. That’s normal for Stratford Jazz! It’s been like that since 1986 and we are still here after 28 years of amazing jazz and well over one thousand gigs.
Future plans are complicated by the fact that we have been unable to find someone to replace me. Finding a replacement could prove vital to the future of Stratford Jazz as No.1 management will rely heavily on the jazz input we should provide.
During the summer break I will be meeting with interested parties to see if a solution can be found. In the meantime if you have any views on how we should proceed in the future do not hesitate to make contact.
After a happy fifteen years connection with Stratford Jazz nothing would delight me more than to see live jazz thriving at No.1 over many more years to come.
Many thanks again.

Stratford Jazz - Review
JON DALTON TRIO AT THE CHAPEL.
Stratford Jazz completed the summer season on a high with the appearance of the Jon Dalton Trio at the Chapel at No.1, Shakespeare Street on Wednesday evening. Bristol born Jon Dalton now resides in Los Angeles where he has forged quite a reputation as a jazz guitarist on the fiercely competitive West Coast jazz circuit. For his summer tour of the UK he teamed up with two stalwarts of the Bristol jazz scene in the irrepressible John-Paul Gard on the Hammond organ and rising star Toby Perret on drums.
Uncomplicated, swinging jazz was the order of the day with a well balanced mixture of standards from the ‘Great American Songbook’ interspersed with original tunes from both Jon Dalton and John-Paul. Jon Dalton cites Joe Pass as one of his main influences and this was particularly evident in the ballad numbers which flowed effortlessly and creatively with a guitar tone very reminiscent of the old master.
Some of the punchy blues numbers belied Jon’s early career in the rock, funk mode and in this he had a perfect foil in Jon-Paul Gard. For me this trio was at its best when performing John-Paul’s compositions with his T4JOEY being a spectacular highlight. A waltz producing fireworks from all protagonists – high octane organ playing coupled with some challenging guitar work backed up with Toby’s propulsive drums, the ensemble was really on fire with this one.
The playing was robust and compelling throughout, whether it was a smooth ballad or something more upbeat the emphasis is always on maintaining the groove. Three musicians demonstrating a love and deep understanding of organ jazz and really know how to deliver.
Stratford Jazz now breaks until September 10th when Gilad Atzmon opens the Autumn/Winter season of quality jazz. Some of the highlights appearing during the coming season include Bryan Corbett, Alan Barnes, Roller Trio, John Etheridge, Simon Spillett etc etc. For more details visit www.stratfordjazz.org.uk.
