Take It To The Bridge & Friends @ The Chilli.

Dave Weisser (tpt/vcl), Darren Grainger, Paul Gowland (ten), Barry Ashcroft/Harley Johnson (pno). Jim Crinson (bs), Eric Stutt/Solly Bashiri (dms/vcl(Solly)). D.N.B. Lance Liddle.
After last week's crowd, this week was, by comparision, relatively quiet. However, it was not without some excellent performances all-round.
Dave played his usual dependable horn and sang "Like Someone In Love" and "Never Let Me Go".
In the second set Harley sat in and played some superb Monkian piano on "Straight No Chaser".
As well as sitting in on drums, Solly also sang Van Morrison's "Moon Dance". Solly wasn't happy with the key but it sounded okay to me.
Paul Gowland, normally plays alto but tonight he was on tenor and he blew up a storm - I left my horn in the case!
Mention must be made of Barry who, after Harley's stint came back and re-quoted Harley's quote from "Blue Monk" just to let everyone know he'd been digging it.
Jim, Eric and Darren all had their moments and it was a good night.
