Andy Sheppard, Jambone @ The Sage Dec. 19.

Hey Lance. I guessed the snow kept you in but I had the job of playing with Andy Sheppard which I couldn't refuse.
I've uploaded some images as well of the gig. I stand out with the white shirt as I totally got the wrong message about the dress code, but I guess the white shirt and black trousers tells people that I'm a pianist; so therefore I'll blend pretty easily with the keys!
Gig was a success. We performed two of Andy's tunes lasting about 45-50 mins; "Gas and Air" (from his Blue Note album 'Delivery Suite') and another called "Adventures of the Rave Trade" which started off with a dark and sophisticated Blues waltz (sharp 9's and stuff like that!) and then I led everybody into this Mingus-type 6/8 groove with solos from vibes, sax, scretching guitar and piano as well as a free improv bit at the end for everyone in the band to go crazy. Best Jambone gig up to date.
Harley Johnson.
