I woke up this morning to find myself lost in what the Good Lady Wife has diagnosed as a common cold, but what I am reasonably sure is accute rhinovirus with sinusitis, bronchitis and gastrointestinal canine distemper (I blame Lucy for the latter). Before it struck I was able to enjoy a fine night out on Saturday at a new Huddersfield jazz venue - Jazz at the Keys. The gigs are being organised by my good mate, Ben Crosland, and the opening gig featured guests Dave O'Higgins and Steve Waterman along with Ben and his trio.
Ben had asked myself and my daughter-in-law, Heather, to take photos of the session which it was a delight to do. We finished up taking about 150 during the gig - the one above was one of Heather's, and the one below was one of mine.
The Keys Restaurant is situated in the stone vaults of Huddersfield Parish Church and makes a wonderful venue for jazz. If Saturday was anything to go by, it will go from strength to strength over the coming months.
