Take It To The Bridge @ The Chillingham.June 1st.

Dave Weisser (trumpet,flugelhorn & vocals), Dougie Fielder (tenor & soprano saxophones), Barrie Ascroft (keyboards), Daniel Tyson (guitar), Ivan Scutt (electric bass) & Rob Bates (drums) + Gaby Heller (vocals) Dave Weisser's weekly workshop session continues to unearth and develop new talent. Guitarist Daniel Tyson walked in a few weeks ago hoping to sit in and Weisser, as ever, gave him a warm welcome. This week Tyson, who just happens to live around the corner, arrived with his Ibanez keen to read the dots. Perched alongside veteran piano man Barrie Ascroft he comped and comped some more - perhaps next week he'll pluck-up the courage and take a solo. Bassist Ivan Scutt and drummer Rob Bates appear to have the tunes down pat and tenorist Dougie Fielder kept calling the tunes both mainstream and bop. Fielder played effective soprano and Gaby Heller joined the band to sing a few numbers including an excellent Lover Man. Russell
