The next group was headed by Jacky Milliet
who needs no introduction, having performed in Chéserex on several occasions. This year he was
accompanied by his Parisian band from the "Caveau de la Huchette", whose pianist, Philippe
Dervieux made a particularly big impression. The professionalism and excellent sound quality of this
band were highly appreciated by the public.
During the third part of the evening, we were entertained by
Papa Bue's Viking Jazz Band from Denmark.
The group was founded in 1956 by the trombonist Arne Jenssen but the other members of the group,
particularly the trumpeter, Joe Errington and the clarinettist, Erik Andersen, have now taken
over the lead roles. Despite the fact that the band was not on top form, having had a full programme
involving a great deal of travelling, they were nevertheless loudly acclaimed by the audience.
The evening closed in a festive atmosphere with a jam session performed by the main musicians
from the three bands.
