Whitley Bay Jazz Fringe Festival @ Trojan Rooms. July 11th

ACV: Andy Champion (bs), Adrian Tilbrook (dms), Paul Edis (pno), Mark Williams (gtr), Graeme Wilson (ten).
Claude Werner Quartet: Claude Werner (ten), Lloyd Wright (gtr), Laurence Blackadder (bs), David Carnegie (dms).
Legohead: David Francis (dms), Lloyd Wright (gtr), Jon Proud (bs).
All but all jazzed out, I hot-footed it from the Whitley Bay Jazz Festival to the Whitley Bay Fringe Festival to hear something completely different.
The Trojan Rooms, in the heart of Stag Do B&B Land, hosted ACV, the Claude Werner Quartet and Legohead. Splinter @ The Bridge regulars will know all about this lot.
Andy Champion's five piece band just gets better and better. A new tune Never Ever (dedicated to the England football team!) was good to hear and a band favourite (and mine) Without Bones (its the jazz chops number on the CD Fail In Wood) were but two tunes in a fast paced set. Claude Werner delivered again playing with great authority (Claude was a visitor to the Whitley Bay Festival proper earlier in the weekend). Guitarist Lloyd Wright has settled in well and I can't wait for their next gig.
Rounding off the night was the 'tight as' trio Legohead. Lloyd Wright is in this band too (!) with Jon Proud (electric bass) and David Francis (drums). Francis really drove the trio, at times creating a drum 'n' bass feel seized upon by Wright to do his stuff. A good crowd. A good end to a busy few days.
