Fred Wesley @ Ned Kelly's

Those of us who were knocked out by Fred Wesley and the JB Horns when they played Hoochie last year will like these photos and comments by our man in Hong Kong after members of the band jammed at Ned's.
Great night at Ned’s with Fred Wesley and Ernie Field on tenor sax, who played one set with us, Fred is 71 and Ernie Field Jnr is 81. As many of you will probably know his father had his own big band and made a few albums. Some great stories from Ernie of when he was with the Hampton Big Band, nice guys and they really enjoyed themselves.
Colin.
