Matthew Kilner-Tenor Sax and friends from Aberdeen Gavin  Hunter -Trumpet, Alan King-Piano,Pete Lowit- Double Bass and Fraser Peterkin-Drums gave a fantastic performance on Thursday night with some classic jazz pieces [ see below]. Matthew’s sax playing is an absolute joy to listen to, as is Gavin on trumpet. These two youngsters will be ones to watch in their future music careers. Pete was as solid, reliable and rich as ever on double bass; Alan on the ivories was as chilled as ever. Mr Peterkin, do you have African ancestry?  The drum solo was a cross between the advance of zulus at Isandlwana and wilderbeest crossing The Serengeti. We need more of this!
