The Danny Allan Band @ Dormans Jazz Club Middlesbrough - June 7

Danny Allan (alto sax); James Harrison (keys); Anthony Ord (bass); Jon Elliott (guitar); and Tom Chapman (drums).
The June guest band, comprising of five young, highly talented, well-known local musicians provided the enthusiastic audience with a varied repertoire.
Starting the night off with an Indie style song, appropriately titled Intro, they clearly demonstrated their musical ability. A favourite of mine, Taking a Chance on Love, followed. It was played with great feeling.
Anthony was featured on Herbie Hancock's Chameleon and Jon on Affirmation.  The first set closed with Misty featuring the band’s leader, Danny.
A fast and swinging version of Sam Jones Del Sasser, which opened up the second set, was followed by a melodic version of Anita Jones’ Sweet Love. Steps to Heaven put Tom in the spotlight to which he responded with an impressive drum solo.  An interesting arrangement of Spain saw both Danny and James taking great solos as well as playing Congas!
After several more numbers, the session drew to a close with a fine version of Pick up the Pieces. 
The monthly guest band nights have proved to be highly successful hopefully ensuring the future of Dormans’ Jazz Club which, this summer, will have been running weekly for 8 years.
