A Sage Decision

Well I'm afraid the weather kept me in tonight - I was all set for The Sage when the snow fell so, wimp that I am, I stayed in and listened to Bob Berg, Andrew Hill, Art Blakey and Joe Temperley on CD and very enjoyable it was too.*
My apologies to Jambone, Harley and Andy Sheppard for not getting to the gig as I was really looking forward to hearing Jambone on the Concourse - I have to be honest and say the length of the evening concert deterred me almost as much as the snow did!
So, anyone out there who is of a stronger constituition than me who made it to either or both of the sessions, I look forward to hearing from you.
Lance.
* I also listened to the Ray Ellington Quartet. Remember him - his son (Lance) was on at the Sage recently. With Judd Proctor (gtr), Dick Katz (pno), Peter McGurk (bs) and Ray on drums and vocals they made a tidy sound.

Ray Ellington was the Goon's regular musical guest, yes? He and Max Geldray, the excellent Harmonica player. Remember it well, my parents brought me up on those tapes.

Why am I not surprized?

...and yes Max Geldray was also excellent much jazzier than Larry Adler.
