Marshall Remembered at Corner House

Peter Wright (tpt), Barry Soulsby (clt/alt/vcl), Lawrence McBriarty (tmb), Brian Bennett (bjo), Brian Sibbald (bs), Fred Thompson (dms/vcl).
There was a general air of melancholia about the Corner House tonight as the regulars, myself included, tried to come to terms with the passing of Marshall Walker. Marshall, who played for the Vieux Carré in the distant past was remembered with a rendition of "Just A Closer Walk With Thee." In truth, Marshall would probably have preferred a number associated with Monk or Dizzy but it was the sentiment that counted and there were one or two misty eyes around.
The band itself went about it's business as usual, "Deed I Do" with vocal by Fred proving popular although my fave was "You Took Advantage of Me" with good solos all-round.
Talking to Margaret B during the interval the conversation got around to the recent "Tyne Soundings" at the Sage. Margaret summed the 'sound sculpture' up perfectly when she said "It was so bad it will get some prestigious award."
Lance.
