Mark Williams Trio at the Side Café

Mark Williams (gtr), Paul Susans (bs), David Carnegie (pictured - dms).
The audience/band relationship at the Side is becoming ever more intimate with tonight being particularly "cozy." The regulars on this, the penultimate week, may not have been out in force but there were a couple of new faces around which bodes well for the future - wherever it may be.
Perhaps the missing punters were jazzipated after the delights and excesses of the Festival which is their loss as tonight's trio didn't allow themselves to be dispirited by the select few in the audience but instead played through without an intermission. All three guys had their say mixing powerhouse aggro with tenderness and exploratory harmonic probes.
George, a Side Café debutanté, saw traces of Grace Slick's "White Rabbit" in one of Mark's numbers and, having since refreshed my memory of Jeff.Airplane via YouTube, I think I can see where he's coming from - or maybe I'm hallucinating.
Next week's grand finale fittingly features Zoe who kicked things off at the Side last year so let's make it a good one.
