Bon Accord


Bon Accord is a truly wonderful Gypsy Jazz outfit, that plays toe-tappingly sweet music inspired by the music of Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli’s Quintet of the Hot Club of France.


The difference is that whilst most Gypsy Jazz bands today consist entirely of stringed instruments. Django, however, also recorded with accordionist Gus Viseur and clarinettist Hubert Rostaing. Bon Accord follows this lead with a line-up of accordion, clarinet, guitar and double bass, playing both well-known and more contemporary Gypsy Jazz numbers plus French and Latin pieces.

Come, listen and let the
music warm the cockles of your heart!

Gone Too Soon - James Renford

James Renford & Fred Webb

At the Silvershine Jazz Club we were deeply saddened and more than a little surprised to hear of the death of saxophonist James Renford on January 9th. Seen here playing with Fred Webb and the Blue Notes on one of Andy Hamilton’s Jam Night's, James also played the club in his own right, using the occasion to showcase a lot of local talent.


As well as being a prodigiously talented musician James was one of the good guys. Tributes have been rolling in from across the music industry, incuding Steel Pulse, Roy Hemmings and the Edwin Starr website.

Dudes of Jazz

I was listening to Pick of the Week on Radio 4 recently, when something caught my ear. It was this interview with Alex Polack and Archie Tulk which originally went out on Radio 3’s Jazz Now, comong from Soweto Kinch’s Flyover Festival, and it was selected as one of the week’s radio highlights by Liz Barclay.
Andy Hamilton and the Silvershine Club both get a good mention, so, Alex and Archie, let’s hope you’re back on the Silvershine stage very soon indeed!

The full interview is still on this iPlayer link at 17.46
