Jacques Loussier Trio

Sunday 17th July, Huntingdon Hall
Just for a change, I actually WENT to a concert and sat in the audience on Sunday in Huntingdon Hall in Worcester.

This restored church was the family place of worship for my Dad in his childhood – his Grandfather’s name appears as one of the benefactors on one of the display boards from around 1927. I went to one of the very last services held here (around 1972 from memory), with a tarpaulin stretched across from balcony to balcony to keep the rain out!

Jacques Loussier is now 71 but his fingers and brain haven’t aged a bit over the years. He is just a phenominal pianist and a consumate jazz artist. But for me it was the double bass player who captivated my attention most of the evening. Benoit Dunoyer De Segonzac – WOW! What an expert!

I bought the DVD and got all three of them to autograph it and as my partner, Stephen (builder of this website) said, “chatted up the bass player – IN FRENCH!” Swoon!
