Nick Pride and the Pimptones @ Hoochie Coochie.

Karen Harding (vcl); Nick Pride (gtr/vcl); Tom Quilliam (ten); Keith Nicholson (tpt); Ian Paterson (bs); Oz Cassidy (dms).
The Men in the Grey Flannel Suits don't stand still and tonight they gave another rumbustious performance as typified by their recent CD - A Midnight Feast of Jazz. These guys rock and they roll but they also have a whole lot of jazz in their soul which makes them tailor-made for a venue like Hoochie.
The horns make frequent sorties on to the dance floor. both guys blow turpentinian solos that must make work for ceiling decorators after each gig.
Leader Nick plays cool he plays with fire. Grant Green to Freddy Greene via Jimi Hendrix. Behind it all Oz drives and Ian steers - bebop to hip hop and all stations in between.
With The Pimps there's always a lady involved and tonight it was Karen Harding strutting her stuff - another great "Jazz Girl".
And not a music stand in sight!
Lance.
