Take it to the Bridge @ The Chillingham. September 19


Dave Weisser (trumpet, flugelhorn & vocals), Paul Gowland (tenor saxophone), Mike Papapavlou (guitar), Barrie Ascroft (keyboards), Ray Truscott (electric bass) & Norman Redhead (drums) + second set Michael Howard (drums)
A regular night at the Chillingham. Ostensibly no stars. No advertised guests but plenty of star performers. Killer Joe (a regular in the pad) led by the flugelhorn of Dave Weisser, the Doris Day vehicle My Secret Love with Weisser’s vocal introduction, measured tenor by Paul Gowland and choice chords from guitarist Mike Papapavlou and Oleo (called by Papapavlou) made for yet another enjoyable set at the Chilli. Barrie Ascroft’s arrangement of Bill Evans’ Waltz for Debbie (aka Swing for Debbie) worked well and the combo cooked on Sam Jones’ Unit 7. On a sour note and I mean a sour note…the Chillingham, as a John Fitzgerald house, is noted for its quality beers. Well, let’s call this an off night. Belhaven 80 Shilling was flat, Workie Ticket (the glorious Workie Ticket) was poor, another beer poorer still, so the default beer – Guinness – saved the day (evening). It comes to something when Guinness trumps the real ales in a real ale establishment. Good session, Dave.
