Melissa Hauffé’s brave idea to reprise some of the best musicians from this season’s stand-out schedule and have them back to play in a special All-Star line up was a sensational piece of inspired programming.
The CJC 25th Anniversary All-Stars was an extraordinary evening in so many ways. Packed house, fabulous atmosphere, outstanding music - with tune selection and some original compositions from band members plus amazing piano solos from Michele and vocalisation from Winston.
This fitting tribute to the club’s great achievement of reaching its quarter century milestone was a real triumph!
Line-up: Alan Barnes – saxes, Dave O’Higgins – saxes, Gabriel Garrick – trumpet and flugelhorn, Tommaso Starace – saxes, Michele Di Toro - piano, Matt Ridley – bass, Winston Clifford – drums and vocal.
