Bebop Spoken There

Noah Haidu: "He [Kenny Kirkland] had zero interest in having a public persona and seeking out record-label attention; he didn't have an interest in becoming known." - (Jazz Times January/February 2021)

Legohead @ The Bridge

Lloyd Wright (gtr), David Francis (dms), Jon Proud (bs. gtr).
After the rock 'n' blues thrash of Pete Readhead with No Time For Jive it may seem a long journey to the jazz/rock of Legoland but it wasn't that far - a mere walk across the bridge to The Bridge and more guitar virtuosity.
Lloyd Wright is an incredible player for one so young - or even old - he can do it all. He swings, he rocks, he improvs and it's all done with taste and panache not to mention technique to spare.
David Francis drives the band along like the Formula One drummer that he is whilst Jon Proud on five string is the perfect foundation for Lloyd as well as contributing some telling solos of his own.
The fact I left early was no reflection on the gig - it had been a long day...
Lance.
