This would have been a gig by the Alan Skidmore Qt. but for some reason Skid couldn't make it and Paul Dunmall agreed to stand in for him. Although Paul is a massive Coltrane fan it is only recently in his duets with Tony Bianco that he has been concentrating on using his tunes. So at the time this was an unusual thing for him to be doing. I think he relished it as much as the audience and the rest of the band did. Steve Melling, Arnie Somogyi and Mark Taylor couldn't be bettered as a superb rhythm section. Enjoy!
Er...ok, there's the blurb. I messed up and had to reupload the files. I thought I might as well actually LISTEN to the music..... It's TOTALLY, UTTERLY, WONDERFULLY, WONDERFUL. The good old Andy cassette recording sounding GOOD. Turn it up and have a blast. STUPENDOUS JAZZY JAZZ!!!
