Playing tonight at The Junction (Coldharbour Lane, Loughborough Junction) with Steve Ashworth – organ, and Paul Canton – drums. We’ll be playing some soulful, foot-pattin’ tunes made popular by players such as Kenny Burrell, Bobby Timmons and Jimmy Smith. 8:30pm start.
I’ve just added a transcription of a great chorus of single note playing by the unassailable Wes Montgomery. It’s on the standard Here’s That Rainy Day, but this isn’t the version from his Bumpin’ album with strings, it’s a live quartet version from 1965. Check it out on the Wes transcriptions page of the site.
Looking forward to this one. 7:30pm this coming Sunday (14th May). A chance to air out some of my originals as well as some classics which don’t always get performed. Myself and Ayo Akintonwa on guitars, Ben Treacher on alto, Martin Young – bass, John Park – drums. Joining us for several numbers in each set will be the young and talented singer Samantha Grefsheim.
