Steve Pimlott @ The Tallyrand, Manchester - July 29

(Steve & Uli @ the Railway 2014)
Steve Pimlott (tenor sax); Uli Elbracht (guitar); John Sandham (double bass); Erryl Roberts (drums).

The Tallyrand, a small narrow pub located at 1030 Stockport Road, Levenshulme, Manchester M19 3WX, is named after a French diplomat who came to Levenshulme in 1793 to avoid execution. It puts on a mixture of cultural events including plays, films, blues and tonight hosted the modern jazz of the Steve Pimlott Quartet. 

Erryl Roberts replaced Phil Bennett who had been pinged and was self-isolating and a young tenor player called Barney sat in on Tenor Madness. He had a nice Dexter Gordon sound and it’s great to see more young people are getting into jazz. I must also mention the fine solos from guitarist Uli Elbracht - well known for his work with the Magic Beans and his teaching at Leeds Conservatoire.

The Tallyrand has a bandstand at the end of the room and an excellent sound system which gave Steve’s tenor sax an edgier tone than usual with a slight echo. This is one of the best venues for live jazz that I have come across and the subdued lighting with candles on the tables gave it a cool Bohemian atmosphere. It actually reminds me of the Uptown Jazz Cafe - a jazz club in Melbourne - which is still going strong.

This Sunday, August 1, Steve’s Quartet will be at the Railway Stockport which will include the fantastic pianist Richard Weatherall. Mike Farmer

Blues for Alice; When; By Now; Lux Sonique; On Green Dolphin Street; Close Your Eyes; Giant Steps; 34 Years and Counting; Tenor Madness; Laura; Take That as a No; My Foolish Heart; St Thomas.
