Paul Edis Sextet - Splinter @ The Bridge

Graham Hardy (tpt/flg), Alex Leathard (tmb), Graeme Wilson (ten), Paul Edis (pno), Andy Champion (bs), John Hirst (dms).
Three guys came off the Subs' Bench for this one - but what Subs! John Hirst, Andy Champion and Alex Leathard. All three are key members of other bands and indeed their appearances at the Bridge are topped only by those of Mark Williams who was relegated to the stands tonight.
Alex, whose finely chiselled features are reminiscent of the young Chet Baker, soloed with cool dude efficiency. I wonder if he and fellow trombonist Chris Hibbard have ever thought of putting together a Jay and Kai fashioned Quintet?
Graham and Graeme fuelled the fire with some temperature raising moments although Graham did mellow when blowing flugel. There were cryptic references to tenor playing Graeme's unfamiliar instrument - it sounded okay to these ears.
Most of the compositions and arrangements were by Paul, some from way back. Needless to say deps, Andy and John, coped admirably as indeed did the aforementioned deputy slider Alex.
The only surprise was that it wasn't standing room only.
Lance.
