Sunday Salsa Jam.

John Rowland (ten); Chris Finch (pno); Dave Parker (bs); Stuart McKie (gtr); Michael Howard (dms).
Salsa was slow today with few punters in. However, the music was good and, as it was also my birthday, I paid homage to the god Bacchus, Talking of birthdays, apart from myself, Mickey Spillane and Bobby Fischer (chess) today is also the date that Ornette Coleman and Herschel Evans landed on the planet. Listening to John Rowland it was the latter rather than the former who sprang to mind and perhaps one of these days John will give us his version of Blue and Sentimental. As it was, we had, during my one set stay, East of the Sun, Man I Love, Scrapple From the Apple, Loverman, Indiana, The Preacher and Footprints.
All musicians were on form.
Worth dropping by on a Sunday afternoon.
Lance.
