The Jazz Esquires @ The Porthole.

Mick Hill Trumpet/Flugel, Doug Turner Tenor Sax, Laurie Brown Drums, Roy Gibson Keyboard, Stan Nicholson, Bass Guitar. Another swinging afternoon session at the Porthole for a small but appreciative audience, Mick Hill driving things along with Doug Turner dovetailing perfectly. Today was the debut with the Esquires of Stan Nicholson (late of The Silver Dollars) on bass guitar, anchoring the rhythm section firmly and contributing some good solos. Roy Gibson & Laurie Brown performing as usual with verve and elan. (no they're not dancers.) There was the usual varied programme from "Breezin' Along With The Breeze" to "Yardbird Suite". High spots included a mid tempo "Mood Indigo", a breakneck "Blue Bossa" and two Basie swingers "Doggin' Around" and "9-20 Special." Interval music from George Laing, songs from Teresa, and Colin Johnson sat in on keyboard with the band in the second half. The music never stops at the Porthole all we were short of was a strolling player called Lance Liddle to join the party. Miles
