It was a toe-tapping, hand-clapping good time at the Longboat Island Chapel’s 19th annual jazz worship service Sunday, Feb. 12. Once again, a band organized by Al Hixon presented several well-known jazz classics. Tony Swain, clarinetist, added remarks on the history of jazz. And vocalist Debbie Keeton sang an emotional, “Have I Stayed Too Long at the Fair?” and dedicated it to her late husband, Gary Deary, a member of the band who died recently. The program closed with the usual spirited rendition of “When the Saints Go Marchin’ In,” accompanied by audience members strutting in the aisles.
