I'll Remember April

I will remember this particular night in April thanks to a fine set by the ALAN GLEN TRIO at the Chillingham Arms. Nothing too far out, just beautifully executed standards such as 'I Thought About You', 'East of the Sun' and Clifford Brown's 'Sandu'. David Carnegie (dms) and Laurence Blackadder (bs) provided solid backing as well as soloing impressively. It had been a long time since I'd heard Alan and I'd almost forgotten the subtle nuances he brings to every tune. Truly delightful. Prior, Dave Weisser, Ian Trewella and the resident band of men stamped their brand on Horace Silver. Later, a blind guy called Martin also played some swinging piano - 'Making Whoopee' in a blues vein no less!
