Jazz At Other Local Venues

Kenny Davern
Kenny Davern     October 1978

Another memory of Lucas Club in Burnley. Kenny Davern had been to Great Harwood with Bob Wilbur in 'Soprano Summit' and we were glad to have him back as a soloist. We were glad that the acoustics were good because Kenny, a believer in hearing the natural sound of the instruments, moved all the microphones away. It made a nice change to hear a clarinet played in a style other than Dixieland.
