One For My Baby

Saturday 1 October, 7:30pm
One For My Baby (And One More For The Road)
A night of jazz on vinyl and live. The Meg Holch Quartet will serve up a mixture of some classic jazz standards with soul and funk fusion songs.

It’s a long way from the sleazy bars of New York and at the same time I’m sitting right in it. I’m listening to Billie Holiday pouring out a story to a tired barman, yet I’m nowhere near. What is it that? Why in some moments do I feel more akin to a black jazz singer from America than I do to my own Auntie Alice? I could say that Auntie Alice informs me about who I am and where I’m from. Billie Holiday takes me to places that I’d like to be from. Too simple minded that, though.– Ian Clayton, Bringing It All Back Home
