Bebop Spoken There - The Chilli Arms

Fresh from last night's gig at the Cluny with TASQ, Adam Hastings turned up at the Chilli playing bass guitar alongside another surprise guest in fellow guitar hero Mark Williams. With two such formidable frettists in the rhythm section the initial lack of another front line horn player was barely noticeable. Bop was definitely on the menu tonight with numbers such as "Anthropology" and "Well You Needn't" two of the 52nd St anthems played. The former had Dave (Weisser) scatting in unison with Mark whilst the latter featured Adam, now on guitar, and his dad, George Hastings on bass - a talented family.
A young guy, Matthew, sat in on alto for the Bird version of "All The Things You Are" whilst Deborah had a vocal blast on "Song for My Father" by which time David C was on drums. Talking drums, Eric had a new kit tonight and they sounded good.
