Jazz Café Jam

Pete Gilligan (pno), Ray Burns (hca/acc), Eric Stutt (dms), Paul Grainger (bs), Dave Gray (tmb), Alan Law (pno), Matthew Office (gtr), Omid Ramak (Dms) etc.
No singers today - they are at the Bridge tonight - nevertheless there were some nice happenings.
That impetuous, and talented, young trombone player David took Satin Doll around the block 27 times - at the finish he blew a cadenza on a cadenza on a cadenza! This guy is a comer. Not that he had it all his own way - Ray Burns managed to have his say on harp over a considerably shorter number of bars without any loss of immediacy.
Apart from Pete, Alan Laws played good piano and Matt Office had his moments on guitar.
It was a good set, not least because of some pleasant company.
