(Review by Lance)
Good to be back in Hoochie and to see it packed. That I was the oldest by at least a 100 light years didn't matter once the band hit the tarmac running.
I didn't note the tunes, I just chilled out and listened. It was jazz, it was rock, it was funk, it was fusion, it was music with soul, it was the kind of music that made you want to dance. If you weren't dancing you were enjoying the waves of sound emanating from the stage. 
Sizzling solos all round. Wild tenor and bari from Wilde as well as some fragrant flute. Hardy in fiery funk mode on trumpet and flugel. Jelly gave off some great vibes and Glendinning in a rockier mood than we're accustomed to kept the temperature in the upper nineties.
Midway through the set Holcombe laid claim to the trombone that had stood alone like a wallflower at a dance. In Jason's hands, the "wallflower" became the "Belle of the Ball" and did he/it have a ball!
Keyboards, bass and drums added to the mix - apologies but I didn't catch drummers name. I did, however, catch his solo which was superb. I've since learned it was Darren Moore - Ace!
Two encores rounded off an excellent evening.
Lance.
