Ray Dales @ Dormans Club, Middlesbrough - March 29


Well-known alto sax player Ray Dales brought his quartet as the guest band to Tees Hot Club's Guest Band Night at Dormans Club Middlesbrough on March 29 with Rick Laughlin on keyboard Peter Ayton on bass and Stuie Ellerton on drums completing the lineup. 
The band started well with an up-tempo version of Secret Love then continued with a few familiar tunes,  It Could Happen To You,  Just Friends and When Sunny Gets Blue before showing what class musicians all four really are by playing  great versions of Gerry Mulligan's North Atlantic Run
and Sonny Rollins Pent-Up House with terrific solos from both Ray and Rick. After many more well-known numbers, they finished off the night with the ever popular St Thomas
Ron Hampton
