Scott Hamilton @ Pizza Express

American tenor player Scott Hamilton is at Pizza Express in Soho tonight (and tomorrow - watch this space) and it was good to see it mentioned in the i newspaper - the concise version of The Independent. 
I quote..."...and his mellifluous tenor sax swings into town on a return summer visit to Pizza Express, reuniting with some old friends, including, John Pearce on piano and drummer Dave Green." Surely a typo as we all know Dave Green is a bass player. However, perhaps Dave read my Jazz Café post - where I noted Paul Grainger moving from bass to drums during yesterday's session - and decided not to be outdone!
Alternatively, it could just be slip-shod reporting which poses the question, if they can't cut it on an item such as this what chance do they have on a major story?
Maybe it wasn't Prince Harry but Prince Phillip!
Lance.
PS: it's my belief that Dave is on bass and Steve Brown on drums.
