Briefly Alan Glen @ The Jazz Café. March 27

Alan Glen (keyboards), John Pope (double bass) & Paul Wight (drums).
Having been elsewhere on the evening (another concert), was it worth calling into the Jazz Café to catch the last ten minutes? You bet it was! Alan Glen was in full flow. A bottle of Prince Bishop, a seat, aah!
A wrist-ringing tempo on Cherokee entertained the few. The few were listening. Paul Wight maintained a punishing pace, slotting in a drum ‘n’ bass feel, cymbals taking a pasting. Bass and drums were under the stairs, piano man Glen forward on the floor. A keen reaction from the few won an encore – How I Wish (I Knew How it was to be Free). Typically joyous playing, Pope clearly enjoys playing with maestro Glen, so too Wight. Handshakes, smiles – clearly a good gig.
