Chilled Out Chilli.

Dave Weisser (tpt/vcl), Nicola Weaver (alt), Barry Ashcroft (pno/bs.), Mark Williams (gtr), James ? (gtr), Claude Werner (bs), Malcolm Dick (dms). + Chris Finch (pno).
----- A laid back, relaxatious sort of night. Guesting on drums, no less a personage than Richie Blackmore's stickster - Malcolm Dick. Malcolm, aided and abetted by Claude (on double bass), gave the kiss of life to "How Insensitive"; later, they both kicked ass solowise on, I think, "Beautiful Love" or was it "Billie's Bounce"?
Nicola blew a cool "'Round Midnight" - Dave did the vocal on this one.
For the first set, a surprisingly restrained Mark Williams played guitar whilst in the second young James was the favoured frettist. Biggest surprise was in the final blues - Barry playing double bass!
Chris Finch sat in on piano.
No out and out fireworks tonight just nice tunes such as "My Romance" and "Skylark".
