Scarborough Jazz Festival September 30 - Afternoon.

I have to confess that the Wold Top Brewery bitters didn't go down as well with me this year as they did last year so I opted to have my lunchtime pint down at the Golden Ball overlooking the harbour. Sam Smith's Old Brewery Bitter went down such a treat I had another one - and at a mere £1.80 a pint! so it was with a spring in my step that I returned to The Festival.
Rhythmica.
Binker Golding (ten); Mark Crown (tpt); Peter Edwards (pno); Rob Astley (bs); Andy Chapman (dms).
A hard-blowing Blue Note inspired set that included some delicate tenor on Sam Rivers' Beatrice, an impressive piano feature, Triple Threat and fiery Morgan/Hubbard trumpet from Crown and a near violent tenor solo from Golding on Herbie Hancock's The Sorcerer. Blind Man Stomp was dedicated to Abram Wilson whose spirit hung over The Spa in a very uplifting way.

Jenni Molloy Trio.
Molloy (bs); Stuart MacDonald (saxes); Chris Sykes (dms).
Bach Reloaded was the heading which gives a fair indication of what this was all about. The lady is a formidable bassist and it was good to hear MacDonald who was quite a revelation for me never having heard him previously. Interesting session.
Just East.
Jeremy Shoham (alt/sop/clt); Neil Angilley (keys); Phil Scragg (bs); Rick Finlay (dms).
Didn't catch too much of this Asian orientated (with a touch of Latin) set as my stomach was crying out for food - a situation I remedied, appropriately enough with a delicious chicken curry in the Jazz Lounge whilst listening to...
Jim Birkett Trio.
Nuages, Meditation, All The Things You Are and My One and Only Love - just some of the highlights of this visit to the oasis where one can chill-out and relax to some good sounds.
Lance.
