PG3 @ The Aletaster, Low Fell

There aren't may jazz pianists around who swing like Pete Gilligan, guitarists who create like Mark Williams and nor are there many bass players who can hold a band sans drummer together like Paul Grainger. This might lead you to believe it was a recipe for success. 
Not in Low Fell!
Sadly, the denizens of the Lower of the Fells did not turn out in their droves in fact they hardly turned out at all.
By staying in to watch the X-Factor Final they missed the best version of Bernie's Tune this side of Gerry Mulligan, All Blues, Senor Blues and Autumn Leaves before intermission.
Refreshed, the Trio came back and gave us Beautiful Love, Whisper Not, In a Sentimental Mood, and a Blues in F - Should have been  called Blues in LF!
The music was great, the ale 'Real' but, alas, the people few.
Lance.
