Monday night and that’s jaaaaazzzzz.
I made it back to the Red Lion, Isleworth for a special night made just for me (as is next week).
Unfortunately, it seems it was made for just about everybody else too – it was packed and I ended up at the front.
I could get used to that. Up at the back, I never realised they have fingers and noses and things;
This is Nigel Price, a jazz guitarist who actually understands how the instrument works in Jazz.
And this is the great Simon Spillett on Sax;
Trevor Tomkins on drums, the world famous John Critchinson (of Ronnie Scott’s band) on keyboards and Tim Wells on bass.
It was a night of standards but with just enough Bop, every now and again to keep me alive.
Long breathy sax notes and then a little walk on the wild side. Just every now and again.
Miles Davis’s Donna Lee, Charlie Parker and where would I be without Thelonious Monk’s ‘Straight no chaser’?
Oh, and welcome back from Ocean Drive, Robyn!
