Some Like It Hot @ Victoria Vaults York

John Addy (tpt/vcl); Simon Addy (dms): Steve Devine(ten); Andy Cholliford (keys) and a great bass guitar, whose name I didn't catch!
(Review by Liz).
Well what an afternoon that was! I have known John Addy for years as indeed has anyone with a good ear for great jazz. He apparently retired a month or two ago, but made a brief  come-back today for those people who enjoy live music at the Vicky Vaults
John does Gasbook to perfection and, as I never intended to review this gig, I didn't make notes...but they were all there .One Morning in May, It Might as Well be Spring, I Thought About You, Mountain Greenery, Ain't That a Kick in the Head? it just went on & on. 
Special mention must be made of Steve Devine, what a great and talented musician. I spoke to him afterwards as I knew he was a pro. A modest man hailing from Bradford, he told me he had played all over the world including cruises and for many big bands. He featured a number called Triste which was new to me, I was entranced and sent a quick text to our webmaster who of course knew it and put me right on the composer - Jobim. On the way home, listening to Gary Copley on Radio Leeds/York on my car radio I was serenaded by Linda Ronstadt singing What’s New? with a Nelson Riddle arrangement. It suited my mood, and made me think, for the millionth time, life is nothing without music.
