'Jazz in the Coffee Shop', featuring Joe Trafford, Jude Dobby, Lucas Ely and Will Redley

In the Coffee Shop on a typical Wednesday afternoon at Radley at 1-15pm, you are always greeted by a pleasant surprise, in the form of a fifteen-minute concert. On Wednesday 17th April, four Saxophone players (Joe Trafford, Jude Dobby, Lucas Ely and Will Redley) played a piece of Jazz each, accompanied by Music dons, AJOH on piano, Tim Dawes on double bass and Wallace Ruby on the drums, to an appreciative audience.

Joe Trafford opened the concert by welcoming everyone, including the Spanish exchange students from Barcelona, in Spanish.

The four pieces were played flawlessly: ‘Summertime’, ‘Dat Dere’, ‘Moanin’’ and ‘My Funny Valentine’. After these four ‘scripted’ pieces were played, the audience were invited to stay behind to enjoy a ‘jam session’, in which the group of Jazz musicians improvised.
