One of the highlights of the trip to London for me was a chance to meet “Jazzin'” Jack Jaffe and have a chance to attend the weekly Singer’s Club meeting. Jack is a terrifically welcoming host and the regulars were very warm, and it was terrific to see all the talent on display! The pianist when I atteneded on Monday, Hywel Thomas, was particularly sensitive and stylish.
And the evening provided a particular thrill for someone who is as much a “cabaret nerd” as I am. I got to sing that greatest of British love songs, A Nightengale Sang in Berkeley Square, in the shadow of Mayfair.
