The consensus on the Online Australian Jazz Archive Facebook group is that this concert was in Adelaide. Thanks to Dan Waples for uploading it to ye olde YouTube and to Sean Wayland for requesting it via the group 🙂 Personnel Joe Henderson – Tenor McNamara – Piano Craig Scott – Bass Alan Turnbull – Drums
The night of my 75th birthday party I had a corporate gig and then rushed across town to the 505 club. The place was packed and when I walked in they all started singing Happy Birthday – it was absolutely beautiful. Lots of my friends were there and Jex Saarelaht came up from Melbourne, which I thought was wonderful.
In this great ‘home video’ from the collection of drummer Barry Woods, Joe ‘BeBop’ Lane lets rip with his inimitable raw and wild vocal improvisations on ‘Body and Soul’ . Playing with him are Alan Turnbull on drums, Evan Lonhing on the keyboard, Rolf Stuube on bass, Freddie Hill on trumpet, Ken James on tenor sax and Freddy Wilson on baritone sax.
