Steve Waterman Quartet - Side Café

Steve Waterman (tpt), Paul Edis (pno), Ken Marley (bs), Adrian Tilbrook (dms).
Tonight, away from the tight framework of the Jazz Orchestra, Steve Waterman proved equally adept in a small band situation and gave those fans who made the effort a display of what it may have been like to hear Lee Morgan or Freddie Hubbard in a small club in New York. Every trumpet player should have been here tonight; their lives and inspiration would have become wider and more enlightened. As it was, they weren't - their loss.
However, I'm not here to preach just to say that it was another knock-out evening by four brilliant musicians. Paul Edis was his inventive and occasionally humourous self as was Ken and Adrian and they combined to form a cohesive quartet that could have been playing together for years. The final "I'll Remember April" was a real blast the ideas screaming from Steve's horn - he was on song tonight.
Earlier, Mulligan's "Night Lights" showed his more plaintive side as he bared his soul on flugel. Melancholia as well on "I Fall In Love Too Easily" - pure Chet. "Good Bait" and an uptempo "Here's That Rainy Day" were a couple of others that floated this man's boat.
I drifted home on a cloud.

Another great gig at The Side. As you said Lance, a lovely selection of repertoire finishing with a stonking 'I'll Remember April'.
International class trumpet/flugel plus superb backing - what more could jazz fans want?
Memorable.

It was great to hear a top class horn player in such close quarters. I enjoyed the first 2 numbers - Days of Wine and Roses and Jeru(?). Another highlight was the 5 minute constant circular breathing cadenza.

About this blog - contact details.

Bebop Spoken Here -- Here, being the north-east of England -- centred in the blues heartland of Newcastle and reaching down to the Tees Delta and looking upwards to the Land of the Kilt.
Not a very original title, I know; not even an accurate one as my taste, whilst centred around the music of Bird and Diz, extends in many directions and I listen to everything from King Oliver to Chick Corea and beyond. Not forgetting the Great American Songbook the contents of which has provided the inspiration for much great jazz and quality popular singing for round about a century.
The idea of this blog is for you to share your thoughts and pass on your comments on discs, gigs, jazz - music in general. If you've been to a gig/concert or heard a CD that knocked you sideways please share your views with us. Tell us about your favourites, your memories, your dislikes.
