Terry and Penny were worried about the 2nd great meeting between the Smith's and the Smythes. However to the youngsters delight it appeared that their respective fathers had discovered something in common. Traditional Jazz.
They were all going to an open air concert at Hampton Court to hear a band from New Orleans. Penny had feared the audience would consist of a load of old fogies but when they arrived they found most of the people there seemed to be under 30. Except the Band, that is.
Yet they were sprightly enough and played really well - straight from the heart.
Joe Smith and Rupert Smythe stood together jiggling around to the music whilst Matilda and Sylvia fed everyone with a selection of great takeaway Mexican food.
Near the end of the Concert the band began to leave the stage and marched through the packed audience encouraging people to follow them. Terry and Penny joined in and soon found themselves on the stage dancing with a lot of other youngsters.
'It's the start of a new Jazz revival in this country' declared Joe. 'Wonderful music' cried Rupert 'my father would have disapproved which makes it even better!'
Travelling back in the car the company were entertained by Joe and Rupert singing:
'Hello Central, give me Dr Jazz!
He's got what I want, I'll say he has.'
He's got what I want too, thought Penny.
