Julian Arguelles Quartet @ The Maltings, Berwick. October 9.

Julian Arguelles (tenor); Kit Downes (piano); Sam Lasserson(bass); James Maddren(Drums)
After a dash back from Antibes in the afternoon, arrived in Berwick in time to hear the above quartet
Mostly original material including his soon to be recorded suite which includes hugger-mugger, jada jada, nitty gritty, iron pyrites.
You've got the idea.
Wonderfully creative music from a tenor-man with a beautiful tone.
One reference to the past was his playing of a piece "Mr. Mac"; which harked back to Chris McGregor's Brotherhood of Breath. Remember the City Hall gig where this music was so cutting edge that the late Joe Young led the walk-out at half time leading all the ex banjo players.
Great Stuff !
BB.

Thank you BB. I remember the McGregor concert well. It did make demands on the listener. However, I seem to think I stayed on as the second set was by the Gary Burton Quartet which was worth the earlier suffering!
