Alan Glen Trio - excellent as ever.

Alan Glen (pno), David Carnegie (dms), John Pope (bs).
-----
Dave Weisser (tpt/vcl), Darren Grainger (ten), Nicola Weaver (alto), Barry Ashcroft (pno), Jim Crinson (bs), Eric Stutt (dms), Stuart Davies (gtr). + Mark Williams (gtr), Solly Bashiri (dms), Harley Johnson (pno). Also ran: Lance Liddle (ten).
----- The monthly visit by the Alan Glen Trio saw John Pope replacing Lawrence Blackadder on bass. The new boy seemed to slot in okay. My only thought was he could possibly have been slightly louder. However, he did the business as did David Carnegie, sporting his new minimalist haircut, on drums and, of course, Alan Glen. Dave Weisser summed it up in his inimitable style when he said "There ain't a superlative superlative enough!"
Once again Alan came up with a different set - he very rarely repeats himself and tonight was no exception.
"You Don't Know What Love Is", "Billie's Bounce", The Song is You", "I Fall In Love Too Easily", "She Loves Me", "Like Someone in Love", "I Love You" - could there be a better selection? It was also Alan's birthday and Dave and everyone sang 'that tune'.
Earlier, TITTB blew a strong set opening up with "Moanin'" then Duke Pearson's "Jeannine" and a Barry Ashcroft original, "San Miguel" all with good solos all-round.
Various itinerants sat in for the jam with Harley Johnson once again impressing with some Monkian piano solos, Solly took over on drums and Mark Williams kept the pot boiling on guitar.
A lot of big hitters in the audience tonight.
Lance.
