Gig of the Year Result

No landslide winners but GREG ABATE with the PAUL EDIS TRIO just edged it from the Paul Booth Trio, Tim Garland/Jim Mullen, Vasilis Xenopoulos with the Paul Edis Trio, Tommaso Starace Quartet and the Stan Tracey Quartet.
At a local level the LEW WATSON TRIO's set at the Lit and Phil Jazzathon stood out although given the number of times PAUL EDIS appeared - and held his own - with other nominated artists plus of course his own sextet and the fact that he organised the all-day Jazzathon whilst in the process of getting married surely merits some kind of musical Oscar!
