2nd June

James Steele – Baritone Sax

Jon Hall – Piano

Neil Sharkey – Double Bass

Mike Sharkey – Drums

This was a very enjoyable evening with a mix of old and new, tunes we’d played before and tunes we were trying out. James was on sparkling form and the rhythm section was right behind him. New pieces included Pat Metheny’s “Question and Answer”, Jaco Pastorius’ “The Chicken”, Lonnie Smith’s “Our Miss Brooks”. We also played Chick Corea’s “La Fiesta” and Freddie Hubbard’s “Povo”.

A good sized and good humoured audience stayed with us to the end of a cool session, although a hot night.
