Paul Edis/Graeme Wilson/Paul Gamblin w. Jeremy McMurray Trio at Blaydon

Tonight was interesting if not earth-shattering. Paul Edis and Graeme Wilson both had moments of excellence on flute and got a good sound together. "Line For Lyons", the old Gerry Mulligan number, came over well as did Bud Powell's "Hallucination". What is it with Bud Powell this week? Everybody's doing him which is no bad thing as, not only was he a piano genius, but he also wrote some good tunes in the bop idiom. On guitar, Paul Gamblin kept the bop lines flowing sounding at times like his father, the late, great Eric.
On piano, Jeremy McMurray, by his standards relatively restrained, nevertheless had several solos of substance whilst Andy Champion and Bill Shield were rock solid.
Overall? Just another day at the office albeit pretty close to being the swingingest office in town!
