Filthy Six @ Hoochie Coochie

Nick Etwell (tpt); Frank Waldan (ten); Pete Whittaker (org); Nigel Price (gtr); Dan Drury (bs); Pat Levett (dms).
This may or may not be the actual line-up but I'm sure it's close! At least close enough for Boogaloo beats a la Blue Note. This was good funky driven party music as per Lou Donaldson and the likes of Jimmy Smith, Jimmy McGriff and Jack McDuff. The only surprise was that it wasn't until the end that folks got up and danced.
Leader Etwell played well in the idiomatic style of say Blue Mitchell never overreaching himself as he hit the right groove. Tenor player had some good solos whilst the Hammond (ish) sound took me back to those good old days when every band, club and bar resounded to the Hammond/Leslie set-up.
However, for me, star man had to be the guitarist (I didn't catch the names and in actual fact it was Nigel Price (see comment)) and his blast on Mozambique was something else!
A strange anomaly was that the only guy with a music stand was the drummer!
All in all, a good gig that maintained Hoochie's reputation for class acts.
Lance.
