An unlikely name for a great player.
Djangoism played the support slot to George Washingmachine at the Regal Arts Centre in Worksop last Thursday. We knew nothing about him so had no idea of what to expect – what we, and an appreciative audience, heard was fantastic swinging jazz in the style of Stuff Smith/Marty Grosz/Louis Armstrong. On this tour George was playing violin and singing (it seems he plays a lot of other instruments too) with Dave Blenkhorn on lead acoustic guitar, Dave Kelbie on rhythm guitar and Sebastien Girardot on double bass. Everything was delivered in a relaxed, effortless style with some great arrangements and splendid solos from George and Dave. There are just a few more dates of their current UK tour, if you are in London this weekend then do try to catch them.
