Jam Session with the Peter Gilligan Trio @ Ushaw Durham Jazz Festival - August 27

 (Review by Steve T)
A large number of those from the headline made their way round to the lounge and were suitably rewarded. The leader, with Paul Grainger, on bass for the rest of the night, and Russ Morgan on drums, jacketless but still dapper in tie and waistcoat, took the first three before FDT, typically un-phased by the illustrious company in the lounge, couldn’t be held back any longer.

Somebody else who just can’t help themselves soon took over the piano stool from the host and was followed by the two headliners his trio had just backed in the theatre, showing that they’re true Jazz musicians who never miss an opportunity to play, and Bruce Adams’ trumpet, in the more confined space of the lounge, totally blew the roof off the sucker.
He seemed fascinated by Francis and it transpires guitar is his second instrument. Francis told him trumpet is his second instrument but reassured him he has nothing to worry about.
The happiest face of the whole festival belonged to John Trevitt from Cleethorpes who sat in on drums for just one number but later claimed it was one of the best things he’d ever done, and it showed.
Lady Kate, who Paul confirmed (what we already suspected) is the Boss, called time at about 11.45 and it went out still on a high without an embarrassing fizzling out.
