Pete Gilligan Trio @ Jazz Café


Pete Gilligan (pno); Ray Truskett (bs); Ian Forbes (dms); ? (gtr).

Pete and Ray kicked off, and I use the verb advisedly, with A Foggy Day (in London Town) perhaps an ominous choice given the news that PG may soon be experiencing it, the fog, first hand. - no he's not in the Olympics!
However, the duo gave a performance that, were there a Jazz Olympics, would be in contention for a medal. Things got even better when veteran stickman Ian Forbes made it three (in 3/4) for Up Jumped You With Spring. Other tunes included Straight No Chaser, Desifinado, Time Remembered and Stella By Starlight.
A young guitarist sat in and showed a willingness to learn from the masters unfortunately, hunched over his guitar, his long hair dangling in front of his eyes made it difficult for him to communicate with Pete or see the chords!
Would have stayed longer but Hannabiell and Hoochie Coochie beckoned.
Lance.
