Ai Ai Arriba!



In March 1997 Leicester based Latin Jazz Fusion band Presidio Gecko appeared at The Pheasant, Admaston, as part of the Lottery-funded Telford Jazz concert series (see 08/02/2013 and 18/02/2014 posts). A splendid time was had by the capacity crowd, at least one of whom had travelled all the way from Derby to be there. The performance was fortunately recorded for posterity and can be heard by visiting our Telford Jazz page. This gig was a particular pleasure for Mike as he was able to catch up with the band's keyboard player Brian Humpherson, who had not seen Mike* since giving him the benefit of his expertise as a member of Jazz Incorporated, Mike's first band, in the early 1970s. (You can hear Brian in action with Jazz Incorporated on "C Jam Blues", the very first track on our Ancient History page!)

* and whom Mike had not seen! (Pedantry at its best!!)
