Steve Summers (saxes/perc); Alan Law (pno); Paul Grainger (bs); Tim Johnston (dms) and Debra Milne .
I don’t know if anyone’s reviewing this for you Lance – I’m not the right person to do it, as I was too busy enjoying the music to be taking notes. What  I will say is .... OMG. Brilliant stuff. Superb, spirited musicianship (you know the lineup!) Strong vocals as ever from Debra and a nice rapport with & within the band. Personal highlights for me were their arrangements of ‘Señor Blues’ (Horace Silver) and ‘Temptation’ (Tom Waits) ... oh, and a surprise Sting number ‘Consider me gone’ ... although *every* number was appealing. I took along  a group of friends and one of them – unused to being ‘up close and personal’ to great live music – was moved to tears.
