Alan Glen Trio

On Monday night at The Side Café percussionist David Carnegie was driving his band, Extreme Measures, to just that. Wednesday night at the Chilli Arms, drummer David Carnegie was helping the Alan Glen Trio to swing along beautifully. In the jam session that followed, pianist David Carnegie laid down some rocking blues that had Daniel Johnson and Ian Trewella playing out of their skulls--is there no end to this man's talents?
Alan Glen was, as always, the epitomy of taste and harmonic acumen on standards such as, among others, "Stella By Starlight" and "Someday My Prince Will Come".
The resident band also had it's moments; "Good Bait" swung along nicely and "Caravan" was, for want of a better word, unusual.
Dave Weisser has done really well to keep modern jazz alive and fairly well in downtown Heaton.
