Bebop Spoken There

John McLaughlin: "I had just recently hooked up with Billy Cobham on the Jack Johnson album with Miles. And I loved the way Billy played. We got really tight after that. So he was the first guy I called [when I formed Mahavishnu Orchestra)." - (JazzTimes July/August 2021)

Pilgrim St. Set @ Hoochie Coochie Sept. 18

Richard Burns (tpt); Gary Turner (ten); Paul Edis (pno); Paul Susans (bs); Rob Walker (dms).
"Good to see you on this historic night" said owner Warren referring to the referendum going on in his native Scotland.
I agreed. On stage history was also being made, and remembered, in a program of compositions from the not to distant past (Shorter, Coleman, Zappa) and some forward looking originals. The first set had some balance problems with keyboard a little below the required sound level to cope with what was going on around him. Perhaps a soundcheck would have helped.
Fortunately, by the second set, the levels had evened out and they produced a great overall sound with all the guys on form. I didn't stay to the end as 'my gang' were absent tonight and I knew a long night lay ahead!
Lance.
