Another Day at The Office for the Chillingham Herd

This week's session at The Chilli was just another day at The Office (Ricky Gervais meets Dave Weisser) until Mark Williams exploded on Bill Evans' "Peri's cope" or "Up your Periscope" as it is referred to in some irreverent circles. Mark Also did the business on "Django" as did Darren Grainger, this week on tenor. Despite wearing outrageous red trainers John Pope 'walked' well on fretless when they jammed a throwaway 12 bar in F.
As ever, Eric Stutt kept it tight and Barry Ashcroft, as well as having some good solos also wrote a few of the 'charts'. Sitters-in sat-out this week with only the ubiquitous David Carnegie (drums tonight) and a young guitarist, Tom, who showed no fear of following Mark. The boy did good.
