Take It To The Bridge Kick Start 2010 @ The Chilli

Dave Weisser (tpt/vcl), Dr. Steve Summers (alt/sop), Andy Lee (sop), Lance Liddle (ten), Barrie Ascroft, Chris Finch, Harley Johnson (pno), Jim Crinson (bs), Eric Stutt (dms), Debra Milne (vcl).
My first gig of 2010 both as reviewer and player. In consequence I feel it should be left to someone else to pass comment. However, as that would be sticking my head into the lion's mouth I'll content myself by saying I enjoyed the blow.
For the record, I played the first set with Dave and the rhythm section getting my chops around (more or less), "Stella by Starlight", "Cantaloupe Island", "Georgia on my Mind", "Watermelon Man", "Killer Joe"... The rest of the guys kept the ship afloat and Dave vocalised on a few.
The cavalry arrived in time for the second set in the form of Dr. Steve Summers playing some superb alto and soprano tonight, Andy Lee - my old mate from Windows Music Store also on soprano - Chris Finch and Harley Johnson on keyboard and Debra Milne who sang "Four" and "Well You Needn't".
I re-joined the melée for Freddie Hubbard's "Blues For Duane".
The only downside to the evening was that outside it had snowed again.
But so what? It was cool.
