What a great gig on Sunday! The band were joined by Mornington Lockett who really was in fine form, performing some amazing solos through the course of the evening.
It really was a delight having such a fine performer playing with the band and as well as providing a treat for our audience it has really motivated and spurred on our regular musicians.
The set, without vocals worked out well, with lots of jazzy treats. The new tenor features we had found were also great and included a large number of charts composed by Paul Busby who did us the honour of coming down to listen to us perform them. If you missed the gig don’t fret too much as Simon and Russell will be performing these nee charts at gigs soon!
Look forward to future guests spots later in the year. Next feature will be with trumpeter Steve Waterman at the Hassocks in June.
